On July 16 and 17, 2011 I will be teaching a workshop “Not Just Digital Printing” In my studio in Prescott, Arizona. This workshop will focus on printing and assembling alternative surfaces. Where digital printing is concerned my goal is to discover the possibilities between the surface created, the inkAID precoat used and the printer capabilities. We will use and Epson Stylus Photo R3000 for most of the printing, but students will also rint at least one print on the Epson Stylus Pro 7890. This will be hands on experience with a couple of Epson’s newest printers.
We will prepare and pring metal mesh, lightweight metal and beverage cans along with surfaces we build from scratch. Students will get a well-rouded look at the digital printing process with alternative surfaces. At the same time preprinted surfaces will be available for students to get an idea of innovative ways to assemble digital prints and create studies for future projects.
The workshop fee of $350 includes all supplies

Digital Prints on Alternative Surfaces
This workshop is designed to be your complete guide to digital printing on alternative surfaces. We will prepare and print fabric, specialty paper, substrates we build ourselves, beverage cans and metal mesh. Whether you are new to this idea of familiar with printing on fabrics, this worksop is jam packed with information on the subject.
For a better understanding of precoats and how they react with different substrates, it is recommended you use one image throughout the workshop. Images that works best are all over prints without strong dividing lines for example a floral scene usually works well.
There is a class fee for and a supply list for students.
