Eco Printing  Jacqueline Sullivan  

Eco Printing is all the rage!  As seen in several of the art periodicals, Eco printing is leaf printing on either cloth or paper. This class will focus on the art of printing on paper with fabric printing optional. Both utilize an assortment of leaves and similar techniques. Use the variety of paper choices you bring with you [see supply list]  large or small, and assorted leaves and mordants (provided) you will create the prints. Learn how to best prepare for printing and what items may be added to the cooking process (think dye bath) to create various effects. Cooking will take place in a communal roaster to create the unique, magical prints.   On the second day, we will keep the roasters going, as we use the printed papers from day one to create interactive and collaged artists book. (Flaps, folds, openings, etc.)    Tues Sept 18 & Wed Sept 19, 10 - 4:30   $325/$20 materials






Forged Metal Book Cover

 Foraged Metal Journal Jacqueline Sullivan

This great artist's book looks like it is forged from a piece of old steel, but in reality it is created using a fairly simple texturing technique done with metal tape, textural elements and acrylic paint. This technique could be applied to many book forms, but in this class we will concentrate on the Japanese Stab binding book form. Students will create "content" for their books with various media, including calligraphic marks, sumi ink and watercolor. This class is appropriate for beginner and intermediate book binders. Students will receive a set of instructive handouts with color photos for the various techniques that are covered in this workshop.   Thurs. Sept 20, 10 - 4:30  $160/$15 materials
