STUDIO GROUPS (Members Only)
Artists throughout the ages have joined together to learn to learn from each other through the friendly exchange of expertise, information, informed critiques and simply seeing how others “do it”. Blackheath Art Society is continuing this very useful creative tradition and practice. The use of the studio for painting, drawing, printing and other approved uses is for members only via key-code access. The studio has easels and work tables but artists will need to bring their own special equipment and materials. There is no tuition in the groups. The studio has tea and coffee making facilities and supplies. The studio fee of $5 is payable on arrival. Opening times may vary so new members and the space may sometimes be unavailable due to workshops or other activities – please contact the coordinator to check

An interesting variety of work is produced by artists of varying levels of ability, all of whom are keen to explore the endless possibilities of this medium.
Like all groups, it is friendly and helpful, with members benefiting from interaction with others and from constructive discussions of problems.

WEDNESDAY 3pm – 6pm
Please bring along any tools you have, and if you have a project you want to start or continue, you’re welcome to bring that also.
Wear old clothes or bring an apron, and wear covered shoes. We will have some equipment and clay to play with if you don’t have any of your own. The fee is the usual studio fee of $5, if you would like to buy some clay it will only be a few dollars (depending on how much you use). If you missed out on the workshop and would like to know some basics, I will be able to give you some instruction to get you started. I look forward to seeing you! Jo Chipperfield

The studio has a dedicated print room with a small press suitable for both intaglio and relief printing and is equipped with glass plates for mixing and rolling ink and troughs for soaking paper prior to printing. Printmakers tend to prepare their plates at home and to use the studio primarily for printing editions but you may choose to do otherwise. As with all the groups there is the opportunity to exchange information about techniques when working together in the studio.
