This workshop will focus on problems of printmaking. Through a combination of innovative techniques, participants will weave 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, and printing on renegade and non-traditional surfaces like ordinary paper objects and special papers. While monoprint and collagraph will be the primary image vehicles, collage techniques and further drawing applications will also be covered as a means of adding 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 together.
