Dive into the world of printmaking and explore the different printing techniques in this 4-session course with Diego Mendoza. In just 4 days, participants will understand and experiment with ink opacity, layering, mark making and creating variables with the action of printing, or reproducing an image over and over. The course will cover risograph printing with Tashkeel's double drum RISO printer, reduction lino printing, screen printing with both photographic and hand-painted images, and hard ground etching on copper plates. By the end of the workshop, participants will have produced a 4-layer risograph print, a 3 layer reduction lino print, a 2 layer screen print and 1 layer etching. They will gain a deeper understanding of the printing process, safety and studio etiquette, and the ability to keep exploring printmaking on their own.
