Introduction to Relief Printmaking

with Edward Steffanni

February 24th, 2024

$30 More Info

Relief is the oldest printmaking technique in the world, with its origins dating back to at least 200 CE in China. While materials and tools have evolved, the general technique of carving away negative space to create a raised image has remained the same. Students will learn to work in basic techniques of linoleum carving and collagraph constructed blocks. Once the carving or construction of the block is complete, students will learn how to effectively ink up and print their block on paper by hand printing and using an etching press.

Monoprint & Monotype Printmaking

with Catherine Royer

February 27th, 2024

$35 More Info

This is both a Print Club offering and a workshop anyone can take—no experience required. This workshop uses printmaking techniques (usually employed to make multiples of the same image) to make singular works of art. The results can stand alone, easily lead to a series of different but related prints, or become collage papers, backgrounds for other works, and the like. Monotypes can be quick, rather large, very low tech (no chunk of time invested in making a reusable plate), highly experimental, and very colorful. You’ll learn to use ACA’s etching press, to register your plate & print (so you can print multiple times on the same sheet of paper and have the image line up), to add chine collé or collage, and many different ways to make marks and to apply/remove ink. You can incorporate other prints you’ve made (bring the plates &/or prints), collage bits, any work on paper (from parts of old drawings & watercolors to photos)—or you can use what we have on hand for you.

Beginner through Advanced
