Get arty these school holidays

Looking to entertain your children these school holidays?

Yackandandah artist Linda Fish is holding a holiday printing workshop inspired by the works of Barbel Ullrich at Arts Space Wodonga.

The workshop will teach participants the basics of creating your own linocut on Wednesday, September 26 from 2pm to 4pm.

"We will look at Barbel's artwork for insoiration and like Barbel use leaves as the image in our prints," Fish said.

"Participants will have fun and make an artwork to take home. The kids will learn how to transfer an image onto the lino, how to carve the lino and the technique of hand printing.

"I will teach some of my tricks and how to get a lovely print in one day."

Fish has been a scuplter since the 1970s and her commissions span public art as well as private collections.

"My techniques, processes and use of materials vary but I often use the casting technique and make moulds, which are then cast with cement, acrylic co-polymer or bronze," she said.

"When I am not making sculptures I like to carve linocuts, which I handprint without a press.

"This process feels sculptural and my images are figurative in form and narrative in rendition."

You can also take your children on a guided tour, a self-guided tour or take the suitcase trail on Bonegilla Migrant Centre.

You can bring a picnic or you play one of our traditional games and enjoy the surrounds for a little longer.

This is your opportunity to explore, understand and appreciate Wodonga’s National Heritage Listed site.
