Basil has just run two workshops at Hall’s Gap (no relation) in the Grampians in Victoria. The first was a two day woodblock workshop in the Baptist Hall (again, no relation), similar to one he did in 2016 and the 4 day one involved etching. Twenty four participants had a great time making prints, many for the first time, while some from last year’s Brushes returned for a second time in the printmaking room. Altogether, 452 students, 20 tutors and numerous fabulous volunteers attended in 2017, making it a bumper year for this annual art-making fest. Here (pictured) is a scene of printmaking happiness, as a beautiful coloured woodblock is peeled off the press.
