All Level Intensive Printmaking Workshop
“My process as a printmaker always begins with a drawing. I will rework a drawing, cutting it up with scissors and taping it back together many times. If my drawing doesn’t delight me, I have little enthusiasm to go forward and make the materials and time commitment to oversee the completion of an edition. Characters sometimes show up and demand to be inserted in my drawings. I love my characters to appear quirky and emotional…lopsided smiles and mismatched eyes. And always an animal or two. My linoleum prints are small editions and I consider them labors of love.”
Join artist printmaker, Coco Berkman, in a 3-day intensive workshop exploring the magic of relief printmaking. We will be transferring a drawing onto a 12” X 12” linoleum plate, carving it with japanese carving tools and printing our plates on the final day. No experience is necessary! Simply the desire and willingness to explore a new art form or if you are an experienced printmaker, a fun opportunity to learn some new techniques. Please come to the workshop with a drawing that excites you!
There is a material fee of $35 payable to the instructor on the first day of the workshop. Coco will bring her own tools for students to use and we’ll be using a “Safe Wash” black ink with which to print.
