This workshop will serve as a guided exploration of combining and creating relief, intaglio, and mono printing and experimenting with a variety of image making in prints. We will carve, incise, transfer images, and learn the secrets of ink on paper. Students will be encouraged to develop individual projects layering plates and creating textural images built from a variety of materials. In the spirit of green printing, the workshop features environmentally-friendly water miscible inks. Printmaking experience in monotype, relief, or lithography is desirable but not mandatory.

Techniques of Printmaking
4 pm - 7 pm
Discover the creative potential of printmaking, starting with monotypes and dry-point and moving to more complicated techniques of etching, aquatint, and color viscosity roller techniques. You’ll learn to combine technical skill and expression into works of art. This course is ideal whether you’re a beginner who wants to understand the process of making a print, or someone who wants to improve technique.
12:30pm - 4:30pm
Create images rather than capture them. The cyanotype photographic process has many expressive possibilities for the adventurous image-maker. Dating from 1842, this historic Prussian blue process offers a compelling alternative to modern digital prints. Topics will include the history of photography, photograms, creating negatives, paper, and substrate selection, exposing and developing prints, bleaching, toning and lumen prints. Most materials provided and all levels are welcome.
