CONCERTINA & PANORAMIC BOOKMAKING USING COLLAGRAPH AND MONOPRINT TECHNIQUES with Sarah Amos
Basic printmaking skills useful, but not required.
Saturday & Sunday, March 7 & 8, 2015, 10AM—4PM
$275 plus $40 materials fee. ($250 for members) $100 deposit required to reserve a spot. Class size limited to six.

This class is a 2-day intensive using basic, non-toxic collagraph and monoprint techniques resulting in either a concertina or panoramic artist’s book. A concertina folds up like an accordion, with hard back and front covers, and the panoramic book consists of individual pages that, when linked together using the French seam technique may be exhibited as one long narrative.




IMAGE WEAVING with Sarah Amos
Basic printmaking skills useful, but not required.
Saturday & Sunday, March 14 & 15 2015, 10 AM—4PM
$275 plus $40 materials fee. ($250 for members) $100 deposit required to reserve a spot. Class size limited to six.

In this two-day, action-packed class, I will demonstrate all my special approaches, such as pre-drawing and staining with watercolor and acrylic before, during, and after the print is being made. I will demonstrate printing on renegade and untraditional surfaces, such as shopping bags, envelopes, newspaper, ridged cardboard, receipts, ticket stubs, airline tickets, old diary pages, printed and plain Japanese papers, lace, and clothing fabric.

We will print onto these surfaces, then collage them into our finished images. Monoprint and collagraph will be the primary image vehicles, and I will demonstrate how to fully intertwine them with our other hand-embellished mediums so they look as if they belong to the image, and are not merely temporary constructs. Collage and further drawing applications will also be taught as a way to create a further dimension within the work.

WOODBLOCK PRINTING with Amparo Carvajal-Hufschmid
Saturday, June 20, 10-4, and Saturday, June 27, 10-4PM
$195 plus $25 materials fee ($175 for members)

Boston artist, Joel Janowitz, will teach a 2-day intensive workshop on the layering of colors in monotype prints, focusing on the surprising and inventive ways oil-based printing inks of different viscosities (stickiness) interact with each other. The results are beautiful, unusual, with unexpected colors.

A facility with this technique will contribute immeasurably to any printmaker’s skills.
