FALL 2020 CLASSES
WILD INK PRINTMAKING
With BRIGITTE POTTER-MAEL & EWARD FU-CHEN JUAN | Sat. & Sun., October 17 & 18, 1 to 5 pm
$120 per person, materials included. Maximum 6 participants.
This is a 2 day hands-on workshop of foraged plant-based ink extraction for monotype printmaking.
Participants will go on a guided foraging walk to identify and collect plant materials suitable for ink extraction. After the walk, we will demonstrate and instruct the ink making process. Participants will be asked to prepare sketches on paper for day two.
We will instruct the process of monotype printmaking with the plant-based inks participants have created from day one. Each person will transfer their sketch to their print matrix onto the art paper. Everyone will walk away with their own art prints and their own print matrix.
There will be time for sharing of experiences at the end of the workshop.
