Woodblock Workshop with Richard Tetrault…on Salt Spring
A vacation and a workshop in one. Nine of us got down to some serious woodblock cutting with the fantastically talented Richard Tetrault. We each completed a 4-colour reduction block and they all looked really great! The workshop was held at Duthie Gallery on Salt Spring Island which has a lovely gallery and excellent sculpture garden (entrance by donation). The current exhibition features work by: Arnold Shives, Jan Smith, Richard Tetrault and Richard York.
Everyone was great but I sat beside Sandra Charge and Frank Huether who’re great artists and classmates. I thought the reduction woodcuts by Richard York which were also on display were terrific. He took the workshop as well and also has a gallery on the island called Studio 2901 Gallery.
The Gallery also has a B&B which was where I stayed. If you are going to Salt Spring that’s the place to stay – especially if you are an arty-farty.
Richard’s crow – my tiger!
Note the coffee cup – a full day of printing while being well fed & watered!
