About this Workshop:

Deconstruct Tetra Pak food boxes and create your own recycled intaglio printmaking matrix! On the first day, participants will learn how to incise detailed designs and texture onto shaped plates, using a variety of cutting and mark making methods. The second class session will cover color mixing, inking techniques, and printing with a press. We will approach printing in a playful, improvisational manner – mixing, matching, and moving our shaped plates in various compositions. We will close the workshop by discussing the different iterations of each other’s work and how to continue using this cheap, accessible material at home. 

Level: Beginner – no previous experience necessary.

Registration closes July 12, 2024. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class. Students will need to gather/purchase additional materials for class (see the materials list below). This list will also be provided with the registration confirmation email.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR:

Etai Rogers-Fett (he/him) is a printmaker, judaica artist, and arts educator living on Piscataway land in Maryland. Etai is an artistic associate in the printshop at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center and teaches printmaking to youth and adults at various art centers in the DMV area. In his printmaking practice, Etai draws inspiration from Jewish craft traditions of papercutting, manuscript illumination, and calligraphy to create compositions that blend decorative and narrative imagery and explore the expressive potential of Hebrew and Yiddish typography. Etai plays with the genres of Jewish book arts in order to tell the stories of gender expansive identities often deliberately obscured from this historical body of work – weaving together archival research, folktales, and speculative imagining to trace vibrant trans and queer Jewish lineages.
