A 4-Day Online Workshop!

Tuesdays, June 7–June 28, 6pm-9pm ET via Zoom

About this Workshop:

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.

Registration closes May 30, 2022 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.

Please Note: The online session will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic’s private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded. Access to the recording(s) will be made available to all participants for a limited time.


Since this is a demonstration/discussion based class, no specific materials are required – your materials would be based on your individual ways of working. Listed below are optional materials which could include: 

  • A few images of your work – can be both completed and in-progress work
  • Ideas you might have for specific projects/goals for your work
  • General supplies/matrices used for your chosen medium: e.g., completed plates/blocks, printing inks, brayers, brushes, drawing pencils, newsprint, rags, etc. 
  • Any of these you might have in your studio – drawings, watercolors, old prints, Asian paper, Western paper

“I really appreciated the discussions about balancing composition as well as the principles for creating a unified series of works. [Both] added an extra dimension to the class and has already helped me to look at my work differently.”
