The workshop proposes a quick incursion into experimental image transfer and printing techniques, without using the printmaking press. The approach is shifting the perspective over traditional techniques, with the objective of experimenting while applying the subtractive and additive methods (using water based and oil based inks). The 2-days workshop offers the possibility of including transferred digital images, with the aim of bringing together diverse mediums and enhancing the visual quality of its results.
Requirements for participants:
There is no previous knowledge needed in regards to printmaking techniques, although each participant is required to use their own source material / visual vocabulary for the workshop.
Each attendee should bring paint brushes, and, eventually, sketches of the work they will develop.
Watercolours, oil based inks, printmaking paper, PVC plates (A4 format, emulsion treated), spatulas, paper towels, additional instruments for drawing.
