This comprehensive 2 day mixed media printmaking workshop will explore the process of combining digital inkjet transfers and traditional printmaking techniques such as monoprint, drypoint , etching and chine collé,linocut and collagraph. We will also explore printing digital images directly on printmaking paper then printing traditional plates over these images. Each student will learn the alcohol gel transfer process and experiment with creating layered prints by adding images from traditional printmaking plates. These unique layered prints can be further altered with mixed media processes. This integrative process will produce exciting one of a kind prints.
Some knowledge of printmaking and Photoshop helpful. You will need to bring collage materials, drawing materials and photographic digital images on a thumb drive and any printmaking plates you would like to use. We will have monotype plates available.
