In this workshop, we will explore ways to extend the boundaries of printmaking by experimenting with Japanese paper and layering prints with drawings and other media. Various types of Japanese paper will be discussed, including how their transparencies can be used in achieving unique effects with prints. Wet and dry gluing techniques including Nori paste, Fusion 4000 and Gudy will be demonstrated. Composition principles such as focal point, balance, entry-exit in the picture, creating a series will be discussed. The teacher will work with each artist to develop their projects, and lead an active in-class discussion/critique. This will be supplemented by an online Slack group, where participants can post their work/questions to make maximum progress between sessions.
Level: Intermediate – some printmaking experience is required. Class project(s) are largely self-directed.
