Fall Workshops in the Gaspereau Valley

Fall Workshops 2023 in the Gaspereau Valley

Maria is back to teaching a round of workshops at Julie Rosvall’s studio in the Gaspereau Valley, Nova Scotia. Julie has a wonderful little printmaking workshop that makes it a fabulous experience especially for anyone who loves fibre, textile art and printmaking. The first workshop will be a highly experimental Monotype workshop for the lover of all things fibre. We experiment with your fabric, yarn, embroidery floss scraps to create stunning one of a kind images.

The second workshop will be focussing on Multi-layered Monotype, which is a bit slower, more deliberate and with quite a bit more planning. You will be wiping an image into an inked plate and with each printed colour layer a fully aligned and carefully created one-of-a kind piece of artwork will emerge.

Reductive Relief Printing
Saturday August 13th   9:30 am – 12pm & 1 – 5pm (bring your own lunch)
After a brief overview the participants will be guided through the process of reductive relief printing. This means the printing of multiple colour layers by carving the image from a single block. Maria Doering will cover several different methods of registration, printing by hand as well as through the use of a printing press. By the end of the workshop, the participant will have created a two colour print.

$75+HST all materials included

Multi-Block Relief Printing 
Saturday September 17th   9:30 am – 12pm & 1 – 5pm (bring your own lunch)
Multi-block printing is another multi-color and multi-layer relief printing method. Participants will learn how to transfer their image to multiple blocks in order to carve separate colours from each block. By the end of the day you will have created a 2 colour relief print with the multi-block method.

$75+HST all materials included


Please bring good cheer, an image idea, a notebook or sketchbook, an apron or old t-shirt and any wood carving tools you may already have.
