  • Jeff Hirst - Alternative Approaches to Mixed Media Printmaking

    June 18 - 23, 2017

    Medium: Printmaking
    Level: All Levels
    Tuition:  $650 | Lab Fee: $75

    This 5-day intensive workshop will explore printmaking with an experimental approach and encourage intuitive thinking and play. Participants will create imagery using both traditional and encaustic collagraph processes, chine colle, photography, found print surfaces, mark-making, and hand work while using the press as a drawing tool. The class begins with an investigation of encaustic collagraphs and builds each day adding a new or alternative process to the whole of image making.  Multi-plate images will be demonstrated. Students will be encouraged to print using a variety of plates - from plexiglass to reused wood.  We will use non-toxic water-based and digital inks in addition to various drawing media. The emphasis of the class is image making and each participant will receive feedback and guidance in creating their personal vision. This workshop includes group demonstrations and individual consultations and instruction.
