Three Armidale artists, including Susie (at left) travelled down to work with Basil for three days recently. The Braidwood studio works well for groups of up to 4-5, and in three days we can expose plates, aquatint them, make hard- or soft ground drawings, use sugar lift…it’s all here. Susie made three separations on True Grain film (drawn on with Rotring ink), and these were exposed onto three zinc plates on our exposure unit and developed in the conventional way. The other participants, Lizzie and Lou, also gave the place a good workout, producing plates and proofs they were very happy with. Basil’s partner, Pam, and Basil’s mother provided food at crucial points and one evening we tasted the delights of Zac’s Paydirt Restaurant in Wallace St – a great place to meet and eat! Enquire if you have a group you would like to bring to Braidwood to do a workshop.
