Print & Letterpress Fall Concentration

Papermaking/Printmaking Fall Concentration
September 22 – November 15, 2019
Georgia Deal
Paper & The Unique Print

This intensive workshop will explore the endless possibilities for combining handmade paper and monoprinting. We’ll begin by diving into the basics of papermaking, exploring techniques to create unique substrates for printing. Then we’ll cover a wide range of monoprint and monotype processes, including reductive, multiplate, and gum-transfer printing. In the paper studio we’ll work with Eastern and Western fibers, and topics will include stenciling, inclusions and embedments, pigmenting, and pulp transfer techniques. The back-and-forth of working in both media will expand your visual vocabulary and encourage you to own every aspect of the process, from paper to print! Papermaker Helen Hiebert will join us for one week as our guest instructor. All levels. Code F00X
