Robyn Culley and Jenny Kelly, members of Newcastle Printmakers Workshop, recently ventured to Ocean Grove, south of Melbourne, to take part in a Mokuhanga workshop run by Terry McKenna. Terry has studied in Japan and has a deep connection with the medium, and a generosity in sharing his knowledge. Terry was both disciplined and thorough and is available to teach in other locations if there is enough interest. Terry comes highly recommended by both Jenny & Robyn.

The Manly Library holds an Artists’ Book Award on a biennial basis and provides artists working in the niche area of artist books the opportunity to be selected, and in some cases have their artwork acquired by the Library to be part of their collection. This year the exhibition was held over the weekend of 1-2 April at the Creative Space in North Curl Curl, Sydney. Two members of Newcastle Printmakers Workshop were selected for this fascinating exhibition (Trudy Goodwin and Gina McDonald) along with one of our recent tutors Guy Begbie. The works contained within this show tackled a wide diversity of themes and topics combining the tactile with visual poetics.
