During the 2020 COVID lockdowns Judith's monthly drawing classes moved online and above are a sample of the drawings created during those sessions of Botanicals (Aug 16th); Trees (Sept 13th); Pen and wash (Sept 27th); Super fast sketching (Oct 11th) and Doodles.
It was a great way to catch up and join in a friendly chat at the same time being gently tutored in the fine art of drawing. Our practice in these new skills were transferred into creating printing plates as you will see in our next post.
A unique COVID-19 funding opportunity from Victorian Government’s Sustaining Creative Workers grant through Regional Arts Victoria allowed the Colac Makers’ Space to bring forward our long-term plan to purchase a printing press and printmaking materials.
Consequently, we were very excited, mid-way through the COVID Great Pause, to receive our Printing Kits. These kits allowed us to learn and experiment from home in manual printing processes and some of our experimental prints are displayed above.
We anticipate the easing of COVID restrictions next week and dearly hope there is an opportunity to open the Maker’s Space for you. In anticipation we are finalising our COVID Safe Plans.
Because of the disruption COVID caused to our access of the space we are extending Memberships for 2020 accordingly
