New/Old Editions

with Mary Leikvold
Thursdays: January 28, Feb. 4, 11, 18; 7–9pm CST

Gain new insight into your vision and practice by transforming old, unfinished prints and abandoned editions into new work. In conversation and collaboration with other makers, explore printmaking and book arts techniques, delve into materials, and experiment with new ideas and ways of working.

Techniques covered in this virtual workshop include relief printing, monotypes, chine collé, stencils, and color mixing. Paper manipulation, including cutting, dyeing, tearing, weaving, and sewing will also be explored. Book structures such as accordion, maze, and pamphlet bindings will be demonstrated and used throughout the workshop as vehicles to contain, display, and incorporate prints.
