Montana printmaker Sukha Worob comes to BARN in August to teach an all-level, interdisciplinary, collaborative two session class. Students will have an opportunity to develop imagery using a set of pre-made screenprinted marks and laser-cut woodblocks. Silkscreen and laser cut matrices will be combined to create unique monoprints.
Basic relief hand-printing techniques using barens (hand held printing tools) will be taught, as well as basic silk screening technique.
On the first day students will create their work using existing blocks and marks, subsequently and should they choose to, participants will have an opportunity to develop their own forms and marks to add to the mix of imagery during printing on day 2.
This class allows the participants to work collaboratively and think outside the box. Combining techniques from multiple studios, this is the essence of contemporary and conceptual printmaking.
Imagery will be made on the ETA laser cutter on thin birch plywood, and in the fiber studio silk screens. Any interested can create their own imagery, or the provided blocks are available to use as building blocks to create unique combinations.
All skill levels and ages 14 and up are welcome to register. The class will meet and work in the BARN Fiber Studio.
A materials fee of $25 will be added to the cost of the class upon registration.
Please bring a bag lunch. We have a refrigerator for storage
