Students will learn how to use the NEW non-toxic Akua Carborundum Gel to create quick and easy printmaking plates. This process yields a rich velvety surface which can be worked into using dark-field reductive techniques similar to a monotype or mezzotint.
Textile printing is the process of applying color to fabric in definite patterns or designs. In properly printed fabrics the color is bonded with the fiber to resist washing and friction. This course instructs semi-experienced printmakers to explore textile screen printing to enhance their skills.
Did you know it was possible to etch intaglio plates without all the toxins, fumes and solvents? Are you frustrated by attempts with acrylic grounds and runny inks? Then this class is for you! Even if you’ve never done etching, you will learn all the basics using Andrew Baldwin’s BIG ground and Caligo soap & water-washable inks on a zinc plate.
Using simple letterpress and relief printing techniques, artists will create an edition of text and image-based posters, suitable for wheatpaste and wallpaper installations. Employing imagery, text and repeat patterns, artists will learn how to properly carve and print a linoleum block and vintage wood type using multiple colors to achieve a suite of prints ready to get your message out there!

This workshop introduces the art and craft of letterpress printing of experimental, purpose-driven broadsides and posters. Using handset wood and metal type, along with other relief printing elements, artists will design and hand-print broadside/poster projects in small editions on the Vandercook press.
Learn the beauty of basic intaglio with the ease of soap and water cleanup! We will be using the best oil formulated, non-toxic inks from Caligo and Charbonnel. Whether you have created many drypoints or are learning for the very first time- this class is for you!
Before the era of Twitter, Facebook, blogging and photocopying, getting your message out was not such a straightforward business. In the golden, but low-tech age of 1960s protest, with options for independent broadcasting or publishing limited, silkscreen printing was the street campaigner's weapon of choice.
This five hour woodblock relief printing class will explore the wonders of non-toxic printing using Caligo Safe Wash relief ink. This class is open to beginners and experienced artists alike, and will focus on working with safe materials.
