ARCHIVE_Print Workshop

David Krut Print Workshop (DKW) was established in 2002 at 140 Jan Smuts Avenue. The aim of the workshop is to provide a professional facility for collaborations between South African artists and local and international printmakers. Emerging and established artists are regularly invited to create limited edition intaglio prints and monotypes at DKW.

A second workshop recently opened at Arts On Main in downtown Johannesburg.

Cyril Coetzee in Studio

31st March 2006 by

The last time Cyril Coetzee was in the workshop he decided he wanted to reinforce certain lines in his existing image with a second etch in the acid bath. Once a second proof of the image was pulled Cyril decided to add a second aquatint plate for tonal areas. Tim prepared the plate for Cyril and he immediately began covering areas of the plate with a protective layer of hardground.

However, once the plates were degreased, we noticed that some of them were quite badly tarnished from being handled on the previous Sunday. White vinegar was used to counteract this minor problem, and it seemed do the trick in most cases.
