Printmaking without a Press I
This introductory printmaking course will take place on Saturday and Sunday, July 7 and 8, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. both days.
Course fee: $235; includes all necessary course materials, inks and paper.
Printmaking without a Press utilizes a unique hand-pressed printing process called “Reductive Ink”™, designed and developed nearly 25 years ago by D. Michael Coffee.
Participants will be introduced to the basics of this unique printmaking technique, and will learn how it can replicate traditional printmaking processes without the use of harmful chemicals or expensive printmaking presses.
Students are provided with a materials list and are encouraged to advance at their own pace by practicing this remarkable printmaking technique in the privacy of their own home.
Printmaking without a Press 1 is also designed for those with traditional printmaking experience and is geared to enhance existing skill levels in preparation for intermediate and advanced classes, if desired.
Coffee’s monotypes have been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the country and are included in dozens of national and international private and public corporations.
