Books Spring Concentration
March 12 – May 5, 2017

This workshop will examine the material connection between image and narrative. Through experimenting with alternative print techniques on the Vandercook, we’ll investigate how mood and tone can be expressed through image and the sequencing of images. We’ll cover printing from found objects, collographs, carved surfaces, pressure print templates, and plates made from handmade negatives, just to name a few. Our experiments will be editioned and traded. Then we’ll move from two dimensions to three as we explore the interplay between image and structure through the creation of handprinted artists’ books. Binding options will include traditional book structures as well as movable and sculptural books.
All levels. Code S00L

Weaving: A Dialogue

Spring Concentration
March 12 – May 5, 2017

Taught by a tapestry weaver and a Jacquard expert, this workshop will focus on image making and storytelling through weaving. Advanced weavers and novices will be encouraged to learn from each other as they explore woven structures for ways to make images. The instructors have extensive knowledge of weaving in all its forms, and we’ll explore everything (almost!) possible in a “weaverly” way. We’ll work with tapestry looms and/or floor looms. Open to weavers and artists of all types at all levels of skill. Code S00TB
