Lino Printing Workshop with Ian Tully
Sunday 5 May 2024 10am-3pm
Multi Arts Centre (Hall), Cressy Street Deniliquin
Edward River Art Society is excited to welcome Ian Tully to Deniliquin as part of our 2024 Visiting Artist Workshop Series.
Inspired by the artwork of Margaret Preston, in this one-day workshop you will learn how to design and cut a single colour lino cut and then print by hand.

The day will include:
- Introduction and discussion on the joys of printmaking
- Learn how to prepare the lino for the design
- Using a traditional still life arrangement of flowers to draw from, you will discover how to draw directly on to the lino, and cut the lino in preparation for printing.
You will also receive your own set of lino cutting tools, so you'll be ready to start your own projects.
Ian is a practicing artist with a strong background in printmaking. He has conducted many workshops over the years and lectured in drawing and printmaking at TAFE and university level.
Ian is currently the Art Gallery Director of Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery and sits on the board of South West Arts as Deputy Chair. He resides in the river town of Moulamein, NSW.
Things to bring:
A sense of humour 😊
Your own drawing equipment would be very handy
For example: a pencil, eraser, retractable craft knife, your journal/sketch book, black permanent felt tip marker scissors, coloured pencils, water colours if you have them (If you haven’t got all of these don’t worry, we can share)
Your own apron, or clothes that you are not afraid to get ink on, and either disposable latex gloves or dishwashing gloves – printing can be a messy business!
One-day workshop (and take-home kit) $165 per person | $130 for ERAS Members
