For those interested in art and printmaking, Noeleen Kleve’s annual open day is always educational – a day on which visitors are able to experience a printmaking studio in action as well as browse the group exhibition of artwork.

This is a wonderful, friendly opportunity to engage with the printmakers, see demonstrations in the working studio and enjoy a glass of wine. Entry to the studio is free and the event will take place on Saturday 1 December from 11:00 to 17:00 at 8 Sunbird Close, Kommetjie.

Printmaking originated in Europe in the early 1500s, initially to reproduce various religious and then later political texts and manuscripts for wider distribution. As the processes developed, printmaking also became a recognised method in artmaking.

As an art form, printmaking has survived and is growing as an art process in our digitised world. There are a number of different technical processes that are used in creating a print through printmaking. As a teacher and practising artist, Kleve has ensured that she is constantly engaged in these processes herself and passing on the various techniques to her students, making her teaching studio a dynamic learning environment.

Kleve also hosted an international residency during 2018 where artists from India, the USA, Australia and Hong Kong shared techniques and experience with one another. Urban Sketchers Cape Town will add further activity to the open studio. They are part of a global non-profit organisation dedicated to raising the artistic, storytelling and educational value of drawing on location. Some of Kleve’s students are members of this group, and have drawn on location in other parts of the world. Artmaking is interdisciplinary and the practice of drawing contributes immensely to the printmaking

All artworks on exhibition at the open studio day have been created during Kleve’s 2018 etching classes and workshops and these limited-edition prints are for sale.
