In this workshop, students will experiment with several printmaking processes, including paper lithography, image transfers, monoprinting, screen printing, and methods for using alternative materials, such as glue to create projects with flocking, glitter, embossing powders, and foil.
Through demonstrations and lectures, you will learn techniques best suited for your specific goals and practice, as well as discuss how to combine multiple types of printmaking and best implement them. Projects will include creating multiple layered prints, yardage, and zines.
