Wheatpaste Poster Printing with Dave DiMarchi
3 Saturdays April 14, 21 and 28, 10am-4pm
M: $300, NM $315, Materials: $31
Includes 12 hours of FREE studio time
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! Artists should anticipate printing multiples on lightweight papers with non-toxic inks and will each be given an ample amount of pre-made wheat paste adhesive—primed and ready to hang their prints on walls, trees, windows-you name it! For the final class, students will paste their poster on a wall in the Frontline Arts Studio for temporary display. Beginners welcome, letterpress and/or relief printing experience suggested but not required!
Deadline to sign up is Mar 30, 2018
