Following the Beswick workshop in March, Mats and Sara continued down the Stuart Highway (with the etching press in the back of the car) to Ali Curung, which is not far north of Alice Springs. Here the dynamic duo ran a woodcut workshop in the well-appointed art centre there. Artists worked with cutting tools and dremels (electric engraving tools) and Mats printed these in a variety of ways to show the participants how their carvings could be presented on paper.Five workshops so far this year (and four artists have also worked with our printers in studio) and it’s only April! Who said the Indigenous art scene was a bit flat?
