VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Innovative Woodcut Methods: blocks, jigsaws and the laser cutter

Jan 12 - 29, 2021

Every Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, 1-4PM MST

Concept

Broaden your relief printmaking skills to include fun and innovative methods with laser cutters. This exciting virtual workshop examines how laser-cut blocks can expand the possibilities of a playful and multilayered approach to making hand-pulled prints. We move fluidly between digital and analog processes, exploring and learning how each can inform our printmaking process and contribute to a flexible, evolving practice of art making. Individual files are laser etched at Anderson Ranch and mailed back to students to print with by hand. Everyone leaves the workshop with files, blocks, finished prints, and ideas of how to integrate technology into their printmaking practices.

This three week workshop will use Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com) to facilitate the class sessions. An Anderson Ranch staff member will coordinate the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.

Monoprint and Transfers: Distorting the Image

Golnar Adili

Tuition $1,160
Code R0101-24

In this experimental, mixed-media printmaking workshop, students start by working in simple and immediate print processes such as solvent transfer and monoprint to reproduce an image, then distort and make anew through scale shift, repetition, folding, cutting, weaving, collage, stacking, and wrapping. Students allow the image to inspire the distortion-making process, and pull from different disciplines such as book arts, topographical maps, maquettes, and architecture. Even though monoprint tracing and transfers are introduced and explored, any 2D image-making process can be the starting point for transformation of the flat and the ordinary into extraordinary dimensional works.

Woodcut and Collage

Yashua Klos

Tuition $1,160
Code R0202-24

Explore the process of translating imagery into dynamic mark-making that is intrinsic to the medium of woodblock printmaking and collage. Students combine elements of woodblock printmaking, drawing, cut paper, and other collage materials to produce complex and compelling imagery, and add to their practice with a whole new toolbox of methods and new conceptual approaches to the woodblock medium. While the primary tenets of traditional block printing are covered, printmaking operates as a means to facilitate the student’s concept. Students gain knowledge of the fundamentals of woodblock printmaking—carving, reproduction, registration, inking, etc.—and various collage applications to produce a multilayered surface.
