Giclee Demo and Presentation

On the 4th June, Richard Rennie Jr. will be running a presentation on Giclee printing at the Manor Gallery in Douglasdale, Fourways. He will be doing a demo explaining what it is, how they are made, types of paper / canvas used, what is required in terms of photos of works etc. and of course an idea of costs. He will bring examples of actual Giclee prints plus the original artworks for comparison as well. Any questions from the floor will also be handled.
The presentation will be free to paid up WSSA members and R50.00 to others wishing to attend which is payable at the door.
The presentation starts at 10.00 am, so could we please ask you to arrive at 9.30 for 10.00am.

Please contact Kerry at the gallery to book your place.

I think this is a valuable presentation to all those artists who have painted beautiful paintings but buyers haven't been able to afford it. This is also useful for selling a painting at a reduced price so you can sell it over and over again with minimum effort and high returns and still hang on to the original. 

Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt". To get more information as to what Giclee prints are link here. Giclee

Hoping to see you all there!!!
