Engraving Workshop at Abecedarian Gallery!

I will be teaching a workshop in conjunction with Abecedarian Gallery:

Relief Engraving Printmaking

Sunday August 29, 2010

12:30 - 4:00pm

Learn the art of wood engraving! We will use High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) to carve small-scale compositions we will print by hand. Learn how to use a traditional engraving burin as well as how to lay out a black and white composition, and carve intricate line work into the material.

For this workshop I will supply high-impact styrene blocks, paper, ink and a set of basic tools for students to use during the workshop. The workshop will be held at Alicia Bailey’s studio, which is just north of Lowry.

Workshop fee is $65 including materials

Summertime Craziness!!!

This week I head out to South Dakota for the fabulous "Frogman's Print and Paper Workshop" where I will be assisting and taking the classes of two very talented artists.

First up is books with Bonnie Stahlecker. Back in 2001, my first year at Frogman's, Bonnie was teaching books next door to my engraving class. I was so amazed by her books that I told myself i would take her class next time she taught at Frogman's. So, 8 years later, I will be learning how to emboss leather book covers using a linoleum cut. (An artist book using the embossing technique by Bonnie Stahlecker is below.)

Second is metal engraving with James Ehlers, a professor of engraving at Emporia State University in Kansas. You can check out his incredible work at Carving on metal is such a vastly different experience than carving on endgrain or resin. I tend to think in relief, and so I hope to break out and think in the positive for at least a week.

More to come about the adventures in Vermillion! Happy Printing to all this summer!

Still in the dark about the digital revolution?
Nervous to run fabric or weird things through your printer?
Not sure how to print an etching over a digital print?

This print will be featured in the portfolio: Tempus Fugit ("Time Flies")

Raindrops fall and cleanse, wipe away memory. Breath flows from heart to mind to mouth, each moment is a breath, time flying by.
