This workshop will involve the basics of silkscreen, each student will have the opportunity to create a cut paper stencil and print it onto the materials of their choice: paper, tote bag, and a sketchbook. They will also combine their design with other student's, learning about layering, and collaboration.
Annabelle Larner will lead students through the basics of the letterpress printing process in SVC's sweet little Letterpress studio. Printing ink can be messy & hard to get out of clothing, so please dress with that in mind or bring an apron.
We started the workshop by looking at a slide show of work that inspires Erin. Then She shared tips for planning a print, demonstrated techniques for carving battleship linoleum, mixing & applying ink to the plate & finally, printing the plate. The students planned, carved & layered water based ink to their heart’s delight & just generally made excellent artwork together.
