Collagraph, Drypoint, and Painted Intaglio

May 31 - June 1, 2014

10:00am - 4:00pm
Instructor: Cathy Savage

The word collagraph is a union of the words “collage” and “graphic.” In a nutshell, a collagraph is a collage which is printed. The shapes and textures of the collage elements determine the look of the final piece. The collagraphic method is a less-toxic approach to printmaking. Once learned, it is easy to create plates out of materials found around the home. It has the unique ability to translate actual textures into images. The plate can be printed either as an etching, a relief, or as a combination of both. Cathy will show students how to create value and rich tonal effects through the use of traditional collaging, drypoint, and painted intaglio. In this introductory class, we will be focusing on single plate collographs to be printed in black. Each student will create several plates during the first day and they will be printed during the second day. This is a great class to explore surface, texture, and layering through printmaking. All levels are welcome.

Tuition: $200*
*there is a $10 reimboursment fee for the materials Cathy is supplying.
Maximum Enrollment: 8

Introduction to Papermaking and Creating with Colored Paper Pulp

June 28, 2014

10:00am - 1:00pm
2:00pm - 5:00pm
Instructor: Kathy Gurwell

Papermaking 1 -Introduction to Western papermaking.
A three hour workshop using 100% white cotton pulp. Participants learn about history and development of hand made paper. They learn to fill vats with water and add pulp. Then each person pulls sheets of paper using traditional western moulds and deckles. The wet paper is transferred to “felts,” creating a “post” of paper. The stack of wet sheets is pressed until most of the water is gone. The wet sheets can then be handled and transferred to wax paper or aluminum sheets for easy carrying. Be prepared to have arms in water up to elbows, and wear shoes that are comfortable since we stand to make paper.

Papermaking 2 - Creating with colored paper pulp.
A three hour workshop using 100% white cotton pulp plus additions. Partiapants have now learned to pull sheets of paper. The dry sheets can be brought back for more creative work, if desired. We again pull sheets of paper, this time focusing on embellishing the pulp and/or sheets of paper, wet or dry. Participants take home whatever they make. Be prepared to have arms in water up to elbows, and wear shoes that are comfortable since we stand to make paper.

Tuition: $75 for one session, $150 for both sessions
Maximum Enrollment: 10

Art of the Cut

July 19th and 26th-27th, 2014

10:00am - 4:00 pm
Instructor: Samantha Parker Salazar

In this three-day immersion workshop, students will explore different expressions of a cut line on both plate and paper. The class will focus on metal and plexi plate engraving the first day, introducing the art of the cut plate. An engraved line is unique in that it is hand-cut with a burin, producing calligraphic marks of various widths that weave through the printing matrix. The technique of engraving can be used singularly, or it can be utilized as a mechanism for enhancing etched lines. On the first class day, students will be instructed on proper handling of the tool, safety, and trouble-shooting involved with first learning how to engrave. Sample prints ranging from beginner to technical master will be provided for viewing. A large amount of class time will be dedicated to experimentation with mark making.

On day two, we will work on printing our plexi or metal plates. Students will be introduced to different methods of wiping the engraved plate, ranging from paper wiping to traditional hand wiping, each yielding unique results. A variety of paper choices will be discussed. Spanning across days two and three, we will embark on an exploration of cutting the paper, ranging from collage to stencil cutting to moving into three- dimensional considerations. The instructor will also bring in pre-made stencils which the students may utilize in conjunction with their own creations should they wish to do so. Throughout our time together we will delve into the rich history of engraving and discuss contemporary applications of paper and stencil cutting in both two and three- dimensional formats. This class will use traditional techniques as a basis for contemporary applications in printmaking and will be very open to playful and experimental approaches with plates and paper.

Participants will be asked to bring a variety of their own paper and metal or plexi plates and Flatbed will provide tools. A list of materials will be sent out to enrolled students.

Tuition: $250
Maximum Enrollment: 6
