Rough Track Workshop
Blue Mountains LookDrawPrint Motif Workshop (1)
In this small group workshop, you'll learn to simplify the complex structure of native plants through my LookDrawPrint process. You will leave with a single large-scale multi-layered motif printed on fabric, like this lovely Kara Wood piece, made at my March workshop.

Rough Track Workshop, 325 Evans Lookout Rd, Blackheath NSW 2785, Australia
About The Event
In this LookDrawPrint Motif workshop you'll learn to loosen up, reconnect with your creativity and make your own hand printed artwork on fabric. Working with simple tools and a basic stencil print process, you'll be learning skills I've been honing in my own design work over the past 25 years. The workshop is dynamic, challenging, playful and productive.
You'll explore mindful creativity, embrace chance and become friends with imperfection to make your own unique multi layered artwork. Prior printmaking experience isn’t necessary – this is a workshop that anyone can do. I love it when beginners come along. Becoming more creative is just a matter of using that creative muscle. LookDrawPrint is a way to kick-start that process.
These are accessible, inclusive workshops, open to any one over the age of 16. The groups are small - only 7 per class - and very popular, so make sure you book early.
I really recommend that you come up to the mountains to stay the night before the workshop starts, so you are fresh and raring to go on the Saturday. Best case scenario, you do the workshop with a friend or two, which makes it fun (and cheaper!) to stay in one of our two ironstone cabins on our land. Rough Track Cabins are set right in the bush on the edge of the Blue Mountains National Park and can accommodate 2 – 3 people each. If you're keen, get in quick. Of course, if the cabins are taken, I can recommend other nice places to stay nearby.
Morning tea and a vegetarian working lunch will be made by my partner Manda, who is a modestly good cook. That's included in the workshop price. (Accommodation is of course, optional and additional. )
To see the cabins, go to roughtrackcabins.com.au.
To enquire about other options for accomodation or to learn more about the workshops, email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The hero image for this workshop was made by Kara Wood at the most recent LookDrawPrint Motif workshop at Rough Track. Nice one, Kara.
