HAND PRINTING PROCESSES
with instructor Camilla Taylor
Saturday, August 19th, 10am-4pm
Sunday, August 20th, 10am-4pm
This two day workshop will cover several hand printing techniques for artists to try both in the class and then use those skills later on in their own studios. We're commonly asked what an artist can do with printmaking that doesn't require a press, and in this workshop we seek to do an overview of several printmaking applications possible without a press. This workshop is excellent for artists who want to print at home, or teachers interested in introducing some printmaking into their curriculum.
We'll cover relief printing in a couple of ways, black ink on white paper and introduce color with "puzzle piece" plates. We'll use linoleum, Softcut, and collagraph plates for our relief section. Paper lithography, an easy printmaking method that can be printed by hand and the plates made with readily available materials. We'll try some monoprint stencil techniques. And lastly, we'll cover cyanotype. Each participant will be able to make a multi-media print with the techniques, or several small prints experimenting with these.
