Carborundum Collagraph Tuesdays with Speedball Professional Artist Network Partner Joyce Silverstone

April 12 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Zea Mays Printmaking, 320 Riverside Drive

We will employ these “sketches” to provide the imagery for making our collagraphs. The term collagraph stems from the Greek, “colla” being derived from the verb “to glue”. The collagraph is composed of layers of materials that are glued or attached to a substrate.…

Drypoint and Color with Speedball Professional Artist Network Partner Joyce Silverstone

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Zea Mays Printmaking, 320 Riverside Drive
Florence, MA 01062 United States
+ Google Map

Traditionally, monotypes are printed from a smooth substrate, with no repeatable marks on the plate. During this workshop, we will explore using monotype methods to approach printing a plate with repeatable elements. Teaching will highlight how to make and print a drypoint plate with time to practice intaglio wiping skills, and demonstrations will include the ins and outs of mixing and layering and manipulating color additions. Each day of the workshop begins with a demonstration of a printmaking technique, followed…
