Masterclass allows artists to make their mark

Longtime TMS member, Lisa McArthur Edwards @lisamcarthuredwards has a penchant for woodblock printing.

The Central Coast’s Makers Studio will hold a four-day Make Their Mark exhibition at the Gosford Regional Gallery, starting July 30.

The free exhibition will feature a variety of art forms such as printmaking, paintings, sculptures textiles, all which have been created by 14 members from the studio.

The Makers Mark Studio is a communal creative space located at East Gosford where artists and community members come together and share resources.

The exhibition will open between 1pm and 4pm on July 30 and from 9.30am-4pm from July 31-August 2 and while walk-ins are possible, people are encouraged to book online through the gallery.

This is because the gallery will only be allowing 20 people to enter at one time to ensure all required COVID-19 safety regulations are followed.

Since opening in 2016, the hub has held regular workshops on a range of art projects. This weekend will see the studio’s first master class back after COVID-19 restrictions were implemented.

The Release Print Master Class will be a two day workshop taken by well-known printmaker, Dianne Fogwell.

Colour printing and collagraph, printmaking basics and lino and woodblock jigsaw prints workshops are some of the upcoming classes being offered by the studio.

The studio has over 50 members and is always welcoming new people with all abilities to join and get involved.
