2-Day Workshop SOLD OUT

Saturday & Sunday, February 23 & 24, 2019
10am – 4pm each day

Students learn, experiment and practice printmaking-without-a-press using inking, line, painterly, and stencil techniques to create a series of monoprints. We use oil-based etching inks and printmaking plates made of Plexiglas and acetate. Stencil-raised plates can be fixed or re-positioned for multi-colored prints with and without registration. Available and easy to make tools will work the pressure. Chine collé will be taught. Picasso’s rinsed prints technique will be discussed. Teaching methods feature demonstrations, examples of hand pressed prints, and dialogue with and between students. Students create a variety of prints and gain an abiding knowledge of printmaking.
