Toowoomba Artist books and etching

Another visit to The Glennie school, for some workshops on etching and Artist books. Through the rose gardens to the new art rooms. which overlook the sporting green with a view back to the historic town. Being at Glennie is like being on a film set with it’s expanse of historic buildings and boarding school, the presence of past students evident in photographs on the walls.

On the first day the students made 3 styles of books: a concertina book, a sculptural book and a sewn pamphlet. They made their own hand printed covers to bind them with.

The second day was a day of etching aluminium plates with copper sulphate solution, then printing them. Their project was about home, which for Glennie students can be a very long way away.

Some photos from the day:
