Turn-Ting, Where Printing and Turning Collide

June 30, 2024 - July 12, 2024

Workshop Overview

Turn-ting is when printmaking and woodturning come together to create prints and objects. This exciting two-week workshop will introduce the lathe as a tool of making prints and then of creating structures for print vessels and boxes. Students will start by learning traditional relief printmaking techniques, such as reduction and pattern printing, utilizing wood as a material. Using the lathe, students will learn to turn cylinders and cones to carve on, creating rolled prints. Participants will also learn to create turned elements on the lathe that will be added to finished prints to create sculptural forms as well as functional items such as containers. This workshop is perfect for printmakers who want to expand their ideas of what a printmaking can look like in the 3D world, and for woodturners to use the lathe in a completely different context. The workshop will provide a safe supportive atmosphere for learning technical skills and developing a personal voice.
