printmaking unleashed weekend studio workshop

  • Unleash your inner artist and join Traci Bautista for a creative weekend at her studio as she shares inventive ideas for making marks with handmade tools, nontraditional materials and simple DIY printmaking techniques. Taking inspiration from her latest book, Printmaking Unleashed, dive into a journey of expressive mark-making.
     
    Explore how everyday objects can create beautiful, expressive marks. Dive into unconventional techniques to create one-of-a-kind monoprints, relief prints and patterns. Experiment with creative ways to adorn the surface and create colorful, textured layers on your mixed media artwork!

    The mark of a brushstroke that dances across the page, paint sprayed through deconstructed needlepoint canvas, a stick wrapped with yarn, hot glue stencils, textured printing plates and stamps made from wax and clay, the bottom of a water bottle, zip ties, toothpicks, freezer bags and craft foam inscribed with a skewer. What do all these have in common? Each one makes a unique mark, an impression on the canvas that helps express a window into our creative soul.
    During this 2-day workshop you'll be inspired, create a bunch of NEW printmaking tools and leave with a HUGE stack of papers and fabrics to use in your mixed media projects. You'll receive a mixed media paper kit and mark-making tool kit as part of the workshop. lunch, pastries & snacks will be provided. ALL MIXED MEDIA supplies included with workshop. see workshop details + materials list tabs for more details.
