Tips & Tricks Sessions

Note: All Tips & Tricks days, unless otherwise stated, are for members only and are held at:

Primrose Park Art & Craft Centre
Matora Lane, off lower Young Street
Cremorne, NSW

It is a condition of entry to all events that closed- in shoes are worn and any specific safety issues identified prior to, or during, each individual event is observed.

These meetings are an opportunity to share ideas, experiences and techniques without the structure of a workshop with a tutor, and perhaps find out the answers to those questions you’ve had. They are a lot more informal and rely on input from all attendees.

TIME:  10am to 2.00pm/3.oopm.
COST:  $10 – members only
DETAILS:  Further details will be available closer to the date of each T&T day.
BOOKING:  Click here to email your intention to attend.

Mark making on paper
Monday 11th November, 2019
led by Diana Brandt

We gaze at rocks, tree bark and rivers twisting their way through the landscape and ponder the beautiful patterns they make, the colours  exposed in layers.

Mark making is a way of decorating paper to emulate those patterns onto paper. They can look  mysterious and cause us to wonder how they were made as we stare into the thinly applied paint and try to analyze how they were done.

Diana uses her papers to cover the books she makes, to add wistful patterns on the pages of journals that inspire her to paint or sketch, and she makes cards and envelopes.

This  will be a fun, experimental, messy and random day. Each page you do will be different from the last. Hidden somewhere there amongst the paint will be little gems of unexpected lines and patterns.
Note: This session does not include book construction.  Please see our Special Interest Days section for days dedicated to book-making.
