Deni Rahman represented the studio today by giving a studio tour as part of the
'Focus Tour' segment of YOS 2016, followed by a kids workshop held outdoors.
Visitors got a chance to see where all our prints are made in the workshop area.
Deni explained to visitors through a step by step
demo on how an intaglio print is made with Tere's help.
Our little visitors also attempted to make a print with hands on experience with spinning
the handle of the etching press in order to better understand how the machine works.
Everyone then proceeded outside for the kids workshop, and some did not forget to check out Deni's Printmaking artworks displayed on the studio walls.
Tape first demonstrated how a relief print could be produced with a small table press.
Deni then showed the kids how they could use found materials
in our environment to make prints without using any ink.
This technique is called Blind Embossed Printing, where the relief is created by
burnishing areas of the object with texture on a piece of slightly damp paper.
The paper will dry to retain the impression of the surface being embossed.
This also gives the kids an idea of how they can make prints at home without a table press.
Here are more photos of the kids in action!
And then it came to the end of the session, not without a customary group shot of everyone.
Thank you everyone for coming down for the YOS 'Focus Tour' at
Grafis Minggiran, and for attending our kids workshop this afternoon!
We hope you had as much fun as we did creating blind embossed
prints with Deni at our Grafis Minggiran outdoor studio.
See you next time!
