Print & Letterpress X Summer Session 4

Print & Letterpress Summer Session 4
July 5-17, 2020
John Hitchcock
Screenprint Demo City!

This workshop will focus on the post-matrix and pushing the surfaces of paper, wood, and fabric. We’ll work with water-based screenprinting with low-tech stencil methods, stressing the current trends of print media in contemporary culture. Demonstrations will include handcut and photo stencil methods, manipulation of the surface, sculptural prints, hand dyeing, sewing, drawing back into, and water soluble markers as we create experimental, unique prints. We’ll emphasize gaining both proficiency in the techniques and an awareness of how these skills can be used within the larger cultural context. All levels. Code 04X
