Beeac art workshop unleashes creativity

NEW STYLE: Teresa Culkin-Lawrence works on a printing press at her Beeac studio The Artist is Home. She will host a printing workshop at her studio tomorrow.

Budding artists can unleash their creativity at Beeac this weekend.
Artist and illustrator Teresa Culkin-Lawrence has hosted a string of art workshops at her Beeac shop and studio The Artist is Home.
Geelong printmaker Gaye Nieuwenhof will visit the studio tomorrow to lead a printing workshop.
Nieuwenhof will teach people to make gelatine plate monotypes for printing unique designs onto paper and fabric.
Culkin-Lawrence said the workshop would introduce a new style to artists.
“The aim of all the workshops it to give people another medium they can use as well as be around other artists, because it’s good to bounce off each other,” Culkin-Lawrence said.
“The workshop with Gaye will teach people how to make the plate so they can take it and use it at home and they won’t even need a printing press,” she said.
“People really seem to enjoy taking part and it can also increase their confidence with trying new mediums,” she said.
Culkin-Lawrence also hosts workshops for children, including a session with Melbourne illustrator Marjory Gardner this afternoon.
She will lead another workshop on March 5 for adults interested in developing new watercolour techniques.
Culkin-Lawrence opened her shop six months ago and said she was pleased with the response it had received.
“It’s going really well, we’ve had a lot of people come in who are travelling between Ballarat and the coast and they often stop through on the way, and there are lots of people from the area too who drop by,” she said.
