Pasta Machine Printmaking

11:00AM-4:00PM PT

Instructor:  Kelly Autumn

Location: Room 208

Create your own prints using a pasta machine as a printing press! In this unique, interactive one-day printmaking workshop, you will learn how to turn a pasta machine into a printing press!  Using this incredible technique, we will focus on two methods of printing – drypoint etching and monoprinting.  There will be an emphasis on drawing from still life objects and tracing images.  The instructor will demonstrate various ways to create and pull prints using a hand crank traditional pasta machine.

Students will be guided on how to add extra dimension to prints by layering mixed media such as watercolor, pastels, ink, and colored pencils.  This will be a day of fun experimentation and entertaining printmaking!

Bring a bag lunch.
