Open Studio: Surface and Shape
ArtWaves Studio, 1345 State Highway 102 (next to Town Hill Market), Town Hill.
This Introduction to Open Studio class at ArtWaves will focus on gelatin plate mono printing techniques. The course will offer alternating weeks of instructor-lead sessions with weeks of student practice and experimentation. Students will learn how to use a gelatin plate printing process to create decorative papers that can then be employed through various techniques [weave, fold, glue, embellish] to fabricate finished works such as cards, booklets, baskets, banners, masks, and beads. There will be a lot of “what happens ifs,” “hmms,” and “oooooo’s” as we delve into color, surface design, and creating shapes. No experience necessary, all materials included. (Who knows, shared studio space may be your thing!)
