Papermaking Workshops

Tatana Kellner & Cynthia Winika
July 22-26, 2013

Join WSW in collaboratiotn with R&F Handmade Paints as we work with two of the most fluid two-dimensional art media. During the first two and a half days of this class, participants will work with Patty in the WSW intaglio studio. Emphasizing a quick and free pace of working, she will cover a wide range of both additive and reductive monoprint methods such as painting with ink and R&F oil sticks, use of paper stencils, Xerox transfer, cliché verre, chine colle and embossing. We will play and experiment.

After lunch on Wednesday we will gather up our monoprints, say goodbye to WSW, and head over to R&F Handmade Paints to work with Cynthia. A comprehensive introduction to the encaustic painting technique will quickly bring even beginners up to speed. Then, we will learn how to develop our printed elements further with encaustic. We will explore layering, collaging, attaching, laminating, marking and other exciting ways to create new mixed-media works combining prints and encaustic.

$710 members ($775 non-members) Lab fee $35
