Take the Plunge! Deep Explorations in Ink Interaction: Monotype and Monoprint with Akua Soy-based Inks - August 5th-7th
3-day workshop with Catherine Kernan
Instructor: Catherine Kernan
Class Dates: Monday - Wednesday August 5th-7th
Class Time: 10am - 5pm, includes lunch break
Class fee: 460.00 + tax
Through an intensive exploration of inks and ink modifiers, this workshop offers the context, information, and inspiration to create richly layered monotypes and monoprints, both as singles and in series using soy-based Akua inks. This workshop will focus on exploiting the possibilities of viscosity techniques to yield results that cannot be achieved any other way. Taking advantage of ink interactions and developing multi-color prints from layering inks on a single plate. It will cover many approaches, both traditional and experimental, including: trace transfer, reductive, additive, and viscosity monotype on a variety of matrices. We will explore resists as stencils and add dimension through relief blocks, stamps, texture tools and stencils. No toxic fumes and extended workability of the inks make it a liberating experience.
Artists new to printmaking and Akua Inks, as well as experienced printmakers are welcome. Extensive notes on printmaking topics and techniques will be available for a small additional cost.
Catherine Kernan is a nationally known printmaker specializing in the use of the non-toxic Akua Inks.
