Traditional Methods, Varied Editions: Silkscreen Monoprints
July 28, 2019 – August 3, 2019
Breaking away from traditional graphic screenprinting, this workshop explores reductive stencil making and non-traditional materials. Utilizing screenprinting, students will play fast and loose, creating unique or variable-editioned prints. You will create textures and stencils using screen drawing fluid and cut paper without the use of photographic emulsion. Participants will discover alternative printing materials such as graphite, water-activated pigments and flocking powder. Traditional screen inks will merge to create subtle layers with a spontaneous, painterly feel. The class will also cover the basics from creating a stencil to registration, after which the world is your oyster. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
