I spent the weekend doing a mokuhanga workshop with the wonderful Ros Kean. In a really packed few days we learned a basic printing technique, and lots of other things, like how to make a carrier brush, how to maintain your cutting tools, and lots of information about pigments and papers.
I really enjoyed the quiet process of making things from the natural materials around the studio, and the ceremony of attending to the tools. Perhaps I won’t pursue Mokuhanga itself, who knows how it will fit into my practice?

I’m now sharing the studio with two others, so a pretty radical cleanup has had to take place! I’ll share some photos now, because it’s probably going to be all downhill from here, unless my friends keep me on track.
As my friend Peri said, Entropy will get to this.
However, let me bask in the order and cleanliness for the time being,
‘A place for everything and everything in its place.’
Thank god for IKEA and Bunnings.

Here in FNQ for a residency with Inkmasters and the Tanks. I will pursue my own work, teach a workshop in monotype, do a demonstration in Encaustic for Printmakers and a short workshop for year 10’s at a local college.
Here in Cairns, nature is rampant! I get to go to the Botanical Gardens each day, and walk the boardwalk to the studio. Such a joy!
