ALTERNATIVE PRINTMAKING PROCESSES TO CREATE UNIQUE AND MULTI-LAYERED PRINTS
with Leah Mackin
Saturday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm.
2-day weekend workshop, limited to 8; Intermediate to Advanced
This workshop encourages experimentation, collaboration and exchange as a means to generate a wide range of printed works in a supportive and productive environment. Versed in the language of process-based abstraction, Mackin will provide students with a variety of techniques that explore tactility, performative gesture, and rhythm in both practice and final product. Through hands-on demonstrations covering monotypes, lithographs and image transfers, students will use unexpected materials and tools, with and without a press.
