This is a workshop about variety and how to combine different printmaking techniques to create an exciting image. Working with Plexiglass and Yupo (a synthetic paper), artists will learn print processes such encaustic collagraph, drypoint, Akua carborundum paste and monotype. Layering plates to print on top of one another yields great depth to the image. Each day will bring surprises and a new strategy to push your work to another level. We will investigate color transparency with Akua Inks, wiping plates with multiple colors and printing on Awagami Editioning Japanese papers. This is a workshop for being adventurous and on the edge of new.
