Instructor: Dominique Ellis
Inspired by the quilts of Gee’s Bend, this workshop explores monoprinting through the processes of woodcut, dry point, collagraphs, direct trace drawing and printing techniques on a variety of surfaces. The relationship between textiles and printmaking has developed over the centuries and we will look at the historical and contemporary applications of how quilting and printing combine. We will use hand printing methods combined with the printing press, sewing by hand and with the sewing machine to create abstract compositions on paper and fabric. We will incorporate printing techniques like Chine-collé and stenciling, with the use of sewing patterns and appliqué to create unique monoprints that reference the expanded field of the applied arts. This course is perfect for students of all levels who want to understand better repeat patterning, gain knowledge of how to make large work on a small press and break free of the edition process in printmaking. Beginner to Intermediate
