Print, Wax, Poke and Stitch Weekend Workshop
February 10, 2024 @ 10:00 am - February 11, 2024 @ 5:00 pm$310.00
Saturday-Sunday, February 10-11, 10 AM – 5 PM
with Annie Silverman
Prints on Japanese paper that are waxed with melted beeswax become strong, translucent, flexible surfaces that welcome techniques like stitching, piercing and sewing. These prints can be used on their own or combined with other printed elements to invigorate surface and pattern in unique ways. The prints can also be sewn together to create 3-dimensional forms.
Students can bring already existing prints, or create new ones with relief techniques. Simple embroidery and sewing techniques will be demonstrated, along with simple waxing procedures. This workshop would be useful for Bookmakers, 3-D mavens, and those curious to use their prints as materials for other projects.
