Hot off the Press Past Event

Presented by Huge Mumma Spice Merchant

Get hands-on with a traditional etching press and make your own print!

Taking place in the Great Hall, see and experience some of the printmaking techniques underpinning many of the publications in the Melbourne Art Book Fair! Participants will be shown a handful of playful techniques including drypoint, collage and monoprinting and get to print their own artwork using the manual etching press. This mini-workshop also acts as an introduction to the full-day Huge Mumma Spice Merchant: Practical Printmaking workshops running the following weekend.
