Fall/Winter 2018 Workshop Series
Printmaking Without A Press: Relief, Monotypes, & Collagraphs Using Akua Non-Toxic Inks with Jane Pagliarulo
We’ll learn fast and furious, the myriad ways you can print on your kitchen table or schoolroom desk using rolling pin, printing pin, or baren. These techniques are immediate, experimental, fun and well-suited for teachers or professionals or folks who claim they are not artistic! Our printing plates will include wood, plexiglass, gel plates, easycut, scratch foam and mat board, and we will play with masking tape, paper, mylar, brushes, rags and brayers.
The $40 materials fee will include inks, newsprint, 2 sheets Arches paper, one each gel plate, scratch foam plate, tiny easy cut block, 3 tiny woodblocks. Additional Printmaking paper and bigger wood block plates available for purchase.
Jane Pagliarulo, Master Printer and co-owner of Atelier Meridian, received a BFA in Printmaking from UMass at Amherst. From 1989 to 1996 she worked as a fine art printer at Hand Graphics in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she printed lithographs, woodcuts, etchings and monotypes. She worked one-on-one in creative collaboration with artists who had tremendously varied conceptual and technical approaches. As a result she strays beyond the traditional boundaries of printmaking. In 1996 Pagliarulo co-founded a printmaking workshop in Hood River, Oregon. In 2007 she started Atelier Meridian, a collaborative membership printmaking studio in Portland, teaching workshops & printing editions.
