Bev Head, Debbie Martin, Lianne Timin, Val Cuthbert and Erinna Law, local printmakers and tutors are currently experimenting with the material of plaster as a vehicle to print onto.

This allows the artist flexibility of shape and form so that the "canvas" evolves and moves into the 3-D sculptural platform.

After a recent visit to Kelly Tarltons, Erinna was inspired to create a delicate series of plaster fish using zinc plates etched with nitric acid or copper sulphate onto plaster, with a resin finish. Her aim is to raise awareness of the challenges facing NZ marine life including bycatch.

Bycatch or the catch of non-target fish and ocean wildlife is one of the largest threats to maintaining healthy fish populations and marine ecosystems around the world.

Val Cuthbert teaches printmaking at Estuary Arts Centre as well as through her own studio. Book now for Val's "Plastered" workshop on Saturday 23 September from 9.30am to 12.30 noon and learn more about this new and innovative technique.

Don't miss out on viewing this modern printing method.
