I had the pleasure of delivering a gyotaku workshop to 13 hardworking individuals on Saturday at the Anna Templeton Centre for Craft Art and Design. The Centre is a hub of creativity in downtown St. John's as well as a historic building. Built in 1849 as the British Bank of North America, the building at 278 Duckworth Street was Newfoundland’s first bank building and is now designated as a national historic site.
The day long workshop gave a lot of information in what always seems to be too short a time frame, as workshops fly by. The group was so hard working and prints were flying off paper. The amount of information really is too much for one day and in future I will break it down into two days, one for print making and the other for the additional techniques of colour and mounting.
Here are some images from the workshop and as you can see it was heads down and working hard all day. Many thanks to everyone who attended. For me, workshops are a two way street for learning. I learn as much from those who attend as from what information I provide. Thank you everyone!
