Tuesday Monotype Intensive Lab
November 7 @ 10:00 am - November 28 @ 5:00 pm$450.00
Tuesdays, November 7-28, 10 AM – 5 PM
with Joyce Silverstone
Bring your ideas and plates to work on during this 4-day weekly workshop with an experimental open laboratory-feel. This workshop is designed for artists with monotype experience. The intention for these four days is to give you supportive assistance where and when you need it. Individual feedback and group sharing will be part of each day, as well as technical help with permanently marked, glued, scratched or carved plates to develop and deepen your experience making the one-of-a-kind print. Guidance in choosing paper, monotype technique or new ways of combining monotype methods may lead to a group demonstration or to a one-to-one conversation about your areas of interest.
The print demonstration and group focus on the first day will be centered on drawing and the translation of mark to monotype plates. Out of this experience, explore and experiment by delving deeper into what is needed; your interest may include drypoint mark-making or creating a relief plate or adding texture and tone with a carborundum collagraph. We will look at examples of these types of plates and prints and then bring the experience of the group to push the possibilities of each of these techniques in our “print lab”. Methods that are needed by all multi-plate printers will be covered; for example, chine colle techniques, registration options, and stencil-making and printing.
The real advantage of the weekly class schedule is having time to work between classes, absorb the workshop information and take it into a daily practice.
Note: Materials fees are not included in the price for this workshop. Materials costs will be calculated and charged to participants after the workshop is completed.
