Elcho Island Print Workshop, June 2011

Elcho Island Workshop 2011

In June Sean, from The Ownership Project, spent 5 days working with artists from Galiwin’ku in north east Arnhem Land. Participating in this reduction woodblock workshop was a mix of some well-seasoned artists and new emerging talent. After a hectic 4 days of printing, punctuated by ceremony, Sean and the artists completed seven striking reduction woodblock editions.

Participating artists included star weavers Mavis Ganambarr and Judy Manany. Also participating was husband and wife team Andrew Markula and Charmaine Ashley, talented weaver and painter Ruth Lulwarriwuy. emerging artist Katrina Burarruwanga, and senior man Frank Wunungmurra.

A set of these prints will be on display at The Ownership Project Gallery and Studio between 27 September and 9 October.
