Experimenting with new processes; Inspired by others’ art spaces
I thoroughly enjoyed Sawtooth School for Visual Art’s studio share this Saturday. It’s very inspiring to see the spaces artists create in and hear them talk about their work. Thank you to everyone who participated.
As part of my leg of the tour I demonstrated a variant of “deconstructed” screen printing; here you can see our results:
If you’d like to learn more about screen printing and experiment with the process, I’m teaching several workshops in Winston this spring; you can read more about the workshop on the Sawtooth Website. And stay tuned for the next studio tour dates; hopefully coming this summer!
EXPERIMENTAL SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOP
This one day workshop explores non-photographic screen printing techniques including painting with screen fillers and blockers, using stencils and masking techniques, deconstructed screen printing, and printing with found objects—all printing methods you can easily use in your own home using safe, non-toxic materials. You’ll experiment with combining methods to create unexpected works of art on paper and fabric. All ages and levels welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring found objects like string, bubble-wrap and cardboard to class to include in printmaking experiments.
