An Artist Book: Pressure Printing Benjamin D. Rinehart
This class is
ideal for students interested in exploring a personal vision through print and book making methods. Each student will create
a personal narrative through the relief pressure printing process then bound as an accordion structure. With the direct and spontaneous forms of relief
printmaking, participants will gain hands-on experience in all phases of creating a multi-colored one-of-a-kind printed book.
Learn how to print from the flat bed etching press and also by hand, allowing you to work at home with ease. To my fellow "pack-rats", I encourage
you to bring all of those miscellaneous textures and paper embellishments to enhance your creation. Some found images, text
and objects will also be available during class. All levels welcome! Fri & Sat, Oct 5th & 6th, 9:30 a.m.
- 4:30 p.m. $290/$20 materials

Leaves of Fiber, Leaves of Glass:
with Beautiful Beads and Threads
Humans have looked to the world’s flora for
millennia when seeking inspiration for art and design. From the leaves carved into the capitals of Corinthian columns in ancient
Greece, to the swirling botanical designs of Arts & Crafts era England, to the irises, grasses, and other flowers found
in traditional Japanese block prints, to the bold colors and motifs of Marimekko fabrics so popular in the 1970s and beyond,
plants continue to be an endless source of inspiration for artists and designers.
In this three-day workshop we begin by looking to our surroundings and collecting
wind-fall leaves and other plants for our inspiration. We closely examine, sketch, and contemplate our found treasures and
what it is about them that most engages us. Then we delve into design and stitching, exploring a broad range of bead embroidery
and contemporary hand stitching techniques while reinterpreting a chosen leaf , leaves, or plant into a small work of fiber
art. Fri, Sat, Sun, October 19, 20, 21 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. $395/$15
List coming soon.
