My In-Studio Workshops have a 4 person limit
In order for a student to participate in this workshop they must have digital alternative printing experience. A prerequisite such as my In Studio workshop on April 28 & 29, “Getting Started with Digital Printing Alternative Surfaces”. If you have not taken one of my digital printing classes before, you can take my online course “Getting Started with Digital Prints on Uncommon Surfaces” from the KathyAnne Art site to prepare. Contact me for details.
This workshop will focus on extreme surface preparation for alternative digital printing. We will be experimenting rather then creating finished prints, but you will print. Cutting edge surfaces will be the goal. We will also experiment with after print processes like encaustics. Sewing may be included, but I have several machines and plenty of supplies.
We will use altered kozo bark and pound it into amate bark paper, dry, coat and print. Amate bark is an amazing surface for printing if constructed correctly. This technique may be used with other fiber. Surfaces will be built and techniques shown to make sure substrates will print safely. Feel free to bring some prints or pieces of prints to experiment with some of the after process ideas. Some of my prints will be available to use so that students will be able to experiment with some construction ideas.
This will be an adventurous and uniquely experimental day.
A laptop will be helpful. Images may need to be altered to fit the size and the look of your surface. I will have jump drives to move and load images for printing.
When building surfaces elements may be added that could affect the look of the final print. We will scan and/or photograph these types of surfaces in order to create a print based on the substrate.
Bring lunch since there is no place near to get something to eat. I have water, diet soft drinks and ice tea and will have some snacks. There are a few errors in some of the gps tracking for directions. Let me know where you are driving from, so I can give you correct directions.
This studio is in a rural area on a dirt road. I do have animals around including a cat in case you are allergic.
Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that won’t matter if you get some type of product on them. If you want to wear gloves while painting or applying products please bring them.
Come with your imagination, questions, ideas and desire to explore. We will deal in what if’s while we create extreme surfaces that safely print on my printers. Any questions feel free to call.
