Stencils, Masks and Cutouts – Oh my!

with Annie Silverman

March 26-27, 2022, 10-5

$275 non-members  $235 members
$35 materials includes ink, paper, stencil materials

Limited to 8 participants.  Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required.

Explore additive printmaking with stencils, masks and cutouts. Possibilities can expand enormously when these basic techniques and simple tools are added to various relief and monotype printmaking practices.

Using acetate, papers scissors and Xacto knives participants will:

  • make stencils to ink on and ink through onto various substrates
  • cut masks to protect and cover up already printed elements when more inking will occur.
  • create cut outs, which can be inked up and printed onto the surface of prints. With the use of thin wire and waxed linen, these objects can become moveable and repositioned in various ways.

Workshop participants should bring  prints to work on that they consider unfinished or “needing something” . There will also be ample opportunity to make new prints using  these techniques in monotype and relief.  Feel free to bring already carved blocks to the workshop.

Annie Silverman has been working with stencils, masks and cut outs in her printmaking practice for over 20 years. Her woodcut and mixed media prints often include unusual color and textural elements that she has created with these techniques.
