Scraperboard Workshop

Work with local artist Annabelle McEwen to consider ways of printmaking that focus on the unique scraperboard technique: a reductive engraving process of scraping off dark ink to reveal a contrasting layer beneath. This process is featured in the current exhibition แผ่นดิน/Tanah/Land through the work of Indonesian artist Maryanto, who is widely recognised for his use of the scraperboard technique within his art practice. 

Over the course of the three-hour workshop, participants will construct their own scratched image, considering both the materiality and its application. McEwen will spend dedicated time helping participants develop their existing or new printmaking skills, so that by the end of the session each participant will have a final product to leave with. This workshop is best suited to early career artists, art students and novices who have an interest in materially focused art-making, whether they currently practice in this field or not. Basic printing materials will be provided.
