WORKSHOPS

Open Printmaking Week
Print all week in this monitored open format workshop. Our studio includes basic materials for intaglio and relief printmaking on two Charles Brand presses (largest is 36” x 60”) and a Takach press (24” x 48”). Participants must be pre-approved and have adequate printmaking knowledge to work independently in a studio.
Instructor: Liz Pagano
Monday - Friday, 9:30am - 2:30pm, Jun 9 - 13
Facility fee: $25
Cost: $165; members: $149

Encaustic Collograph
This workshop combines encaustic painting with printmaking by creating collagraph plates using wax to make the printable matrix. Participants will be able to experiment with inlaying and incising techniques to create texture and build their image on a re-useable Plexi-glass plate which can then be inked with water based inks (Akua intaglio) and printed on a printing press. The possibilities of using encaustic to create texture in printmaking are limitless. Combining these two artistic mediums will be an exciting visual and artistic journey. This workshop is best suited for those with some experience with encaustic and printmaking with a press, but not required. Specialized materials valued at $40 included.
Instructor: Binnie Birstein
Saturday & Sunday, 10am - 4pm, June 14 - 15
Facility fee: $15

The Illuminated Journal
The goal of this three-day workshop is to bring out the unique vision of each student. Drawing, printmaking and bookmaking are pursued in a positive atmosphere where the individual is supported and encouraged. The journal is a place where the visual practices of creating images, shaping letters, arranging words and space all unite in one creative act. In this course we will have the opportunity to be outside and work from nature. Participants will develop the creative practice of freely, clearly and honestly recording a personal portrait of their unique world and world-view. Using a variety of media (watercolor, printmaking, collage, and drawing) you will create your own pages and construct an artist’s book/journal of them by the end of the workshop. Open to all levels.
