The Big Build-Up: Printing Layers and Finding Design Through Accumulation
September 16, 2018 – September 22, 2018
In this workshop students learn to blend cautious block carving techniques with cavalier applications of ink while printing compositions that are developed in stages. Participants will generate a large body of work while discovering how to properly edition relief prints. Simultaneously, you will create multiples that become one-of-a-kind pieces. Working with linoleum, wood and plastic students will cut and carve all the elements in their designs. All printing will be done with oil-based inks, and students will learn how to mix colors, adjust transparency and modify the ink’s performance. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
