Collaborate with a Master Printer: Monoprint Workshop
This workshop is part of our Master Printer Series and also our Poetry Festival.
Artists have always worked with master printers, experienced in their craft, to achieve superlative results. This course offers the chance for a small group of students with some experience in printmaking to hone their craft in collaboration with a master printer. Working on a series of prints, each artist will explore their ideas in woodcut, intaglio, and monoprint, or possibly a combination of these. Throughout the week, we will experiment with different papers, inking techniques, and registration of colors. By focusing on the development of the image, participants will come away with a group of prints at a very high level, and an understanding of professional standards.
Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22 x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
