Gyotaku workshop registration

This is a  lumpfish that I have been printing this past weekend.  They're such unique fish, a cross between a dinosaur and sea monster.  And a printing challenge.  It may be one of the fish that I bring for printing at my workshop in March.  That either has you worried or fascinated.  If the latter, now is your chance to register for this unique workshop in St. John's.

I have sent out the initial information about my upcoming Gyotaku workshop to mailing list subscribers.  There is a reduced price for subscribers until the end of the year, so do consider signing up, if only to get the lower registration price.

If you would like to register, you can do by the button below and I will email you the details of the workshop.  I will be providing more details about the workshop on a static page on the blog very soon. 

Gyotaku Workshop
On March 19, 2011 I will be offering a workshop for beginners in the ancient Japanese art of Gyotaku - or fish printing. This technique is unique and very different from anything you've done before. We'll be using real fish as well as replicas and getting messy! Are you up for it?

If you are interested in learning more and going home with 3 or 4 very special pieces of art that you've created, then come along. I'd love to share everything I know with you!

I've just popped this into the draft of next week's "who's making a mark?" - which seemed sort of apt! :)

What an amazing thing - I've never seen such a fish! Would love to be able to attend your workshop - instead I'll look forward to seeing some of the results here...

Jeanette said...

Thanks Katherine. The lumpfish is definitely making its mark. :)

Hedera, isn't it an odd fish? Its quite prehistoric looking and feels like very rough sandpaper to the touch.
