Experimental Printmaking with Winsome Jobling

Saturday, February 3, 2024 @ 9:30 am - Sunday, February 4, 2024 @ 4:30 pm

Free – $500.00

Lithosphere Mars 1, Winsome Jobling


This workshop is now fully booked.  To be added to the waitlist, please select the ticket type ‘Waitlist’ and go through the checkout for $0.


This is a unique opportunity to learn from internationally renowned NT based artist Winsome Jobling.   Winsome works experimentally with alternative types of plates to develop complex imagery and expressive line work. Her plates become a language through which she communicates her ideas.

Understanding the properties of plastic print plates enables the printmaker to exploit the materials’ strengths and weaknesses to create a range of distinctive marks.

In this 2-day workshop, you’ll be able to push the boundaries of drypoint techniques, working with Perspex and High-Impact Polystyrene plates using a range of tools and solvents to add and abrade the plate surface.
You’ll develop your ideas to work towards a final print, including working in layers with multiple plates and potentially incorporating handmade papers.

Some basic printmaking experience is an advantage though not essential.

Participants to bring:
• Drawings, photocopies, ideas
• Notebook, pencils etc
• Flat objects with textures – eg. scraps of textured lace, Skeletonised leaves
• Printmaking paper (some can be purchased at the studio)
• OPTIONAL – Dremel if you have one

Materials supplied:
• Perspex plates – acrylic and HIPS
• Inks and consumables including gloves, paper towel, rags
• Proofing paper



$500 per person including most materials, consumables, acrylic plates, and use of tools for the 2 days

Early bird discount $50 – use the coupon code at checkout ‘winsome2024’ – expires 1 January 2024


About the Tutor:

Darwin based artist Winsome Jobling works primarily with handmade paper and experimental printmaking as well as sculpture and drawing. She uses many local plants to make her paper such as Spear Grass, Banyan Fig and the declared weed Gamba Grass. Her work is a haptic collaboration with the natural world and a response to our impact on it. Recent works explore the impacts of bushfires and climate change on the Top End Savannah.
She has exhibited regularly in Darwin and in 2016 the Museum & Art Gallery of the NT held the survey show Winsome Jobling; the Nature of Paper.
Jobling was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study papermaking in the USA in 2008 and maintains links with international practitioners through conferences, residencies and exhibitions. The most recent Residency was in 2019 at the Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland, Ohio.
