The Process of Printmaking
May 1 - May 8 |
**Registration closes April 29 at noon**
Sundays | May 1 & May 8 | 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
In this workshop for beginner and returning students, explore basic relief printmaking techniques by carving an image of your choice into a soft rubber-like block that you will then ink up and hand-print onto traditional Western and Japanese papers. In the first week, students will be introduced to the tools and processes, starting with non-toxic black and white ink, and in the following week building up to using coloured inks, including the vibrant rainbow roll and mixing colours. Students will leave this class with several original fine art prints plus the tools and ability to continue printmaking at home. Bring a bagged lunch, small cloth, old clothes or an apron, as well as sketches, drawings, or photographs for inspiration.
All tools and materials provided upon payment of $20.00 Materials Fee. Materials Fee payable to instructor at class.
