This workshop took place in January 2018. We are now beginning to plan for the 2020 workshops week. Please check back later for details.

About The Class

Instructor: Dan Welden

Medium: Printmaking

Workshop Title: Hybrid Works, Solarplate and Monoprinting

Experiment with the new Solarplate in the printmaking process. Draw, paint, or work photographically and then re-work your images with gesso, Caran d'Ache crayons, matt medium, and other mixed media materials. The excitement of hybrid works on paper can yield many interpretations from a singular 16X20 inch Solarplate and can be used in combination with the monotype. Although the process may be new, for self-directed printmakers there will be a strong emphasis on developing a ‘series’ of ‘one of a kind’ works.  Artists may also feel free to bring their rejects or incomplete works, to be re-worked and given new life.  Some printmaking experience suggested.

Workshop Ended

He gets you to do things you didn’t think were possible. He manages to get things out of you that you can’t predict.
