This workshop will cover the basics of silkscreen printmaking and arm participants with the knowledge and skills to produce silkscreens on-the-go, in their home studios, and with minimal professional equipment. Working from the framework of DIY creative ingenuity, we will learn various approaches to stencil-making, color-mixing using primarily transparency and pigment, and low-tech press mechanics. When simplified, silkscreen lends itself to experimentation and iterative making. We will use these attributes to produce prints that are creative, intuitive, and improvisational. Materials for printing can range from paper to textiles.Paloma-Barhaugh-Bordas-Materials-List-SP24.docx.pdf
Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas is a printmaker, artist, educator, and activist who reckons with what it means to live within the complicated, blurry lines of borders and ancestral lands. They earned their BA at Carleton College and their MFA in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. Barhaugh-Bordas’ work aims to portray the intersections between humans and nature, merging the two for insights on migration, queerness, and ever-shifting socio-geographic boundaries. Their work has been shown at both national and international venues such as the Casa Lu in Mexico City, Transmitter in Brooklyn, Handwerker Gallery, Buffalo Artist’s Studios, and Sediment Arts.
