Clay Printing with Printmaker Martha Castillo
First 2019 Workshop :
Saturday - Sunday, January 12 & 13, 2019
10am-4pm | No Experience Needed
In this two-day workshop, students will be introduced to a new and innovative approach to monotype printmaking called Clayprint. This technique substitutes potter's clay and pure pigments for the traditional rigid plate and printmaker’s inks. Involving a buildup of many layers of pigmented clay slip on an un-fired clay slab, the prints are hand pulled onto a polyester ‘canvas’. This medium appeals to artists with ceramic backgrounds, printmaking, and other mediums as well.
