This workshop will focus on problems of printmaking. Through the combination of innovative techniques, participants will weave together deep, rich and interesting complexity into their prints. Sarah will demonstrate techniques such as pre-drawing and staining with paints before, during and after the print is being made, printing on renegade and non-traditional surfaces like ordinary paper objects and special papers. Monoprint and Collagraph will be the primary image vehicles, Collage techniques and further drawing applications will be also covered to create further dimension within the work. The workshop will end with instruction on how to edit, curate and make a large print by hand stitching multiple smaller pieces.
