Monoprint for Makers: using laser-cut blocks, jigsaws & stencils – R1111-19

Date: Aug 12 - 16, 2019

Skill Level(s): II to III i

Instructor(s): Lari Gibbons

Tuition: $985
Studio Fee: $100
Registration Fee: $45

Basic Photoshop skills required.

Concept:

Examine how laser-cut stencils and woodblocks can expand the possibilities of a multilayered, painterly and playful approach to making hand-pulled prints. Using Anderson Ranch Art Center’s Digital Fabrication Lab (“FabLab”) and the Patton Print Shop, students produce unique, one-of-a-kind impressions called monoprints. After working with laser-cut paper stencils, we create shaped plates and incorporate engraved woodblocks. Digital and analog processes are integrated, creating a dynamic studio practice.

Media & Techniques:

Students use the FabLab to engrave woodblocks and cut paper stencils that can be combined with hand-drawn matrices and marks in the print shop. Students who have a laptop with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator should bring it, along with a flash drive. Those without one may use available equipment. Although the instructor demonstrates how to prepare images for digital applications, basic Photoshop skills are necessary.

Activities:

This workshop features hands-on demonstrations in the FabLab and print shop followed by ample studio time. We combinine informal discussion and group feedback with personalized instruction and ongoing technical assistance.
