Mokulito is a flexible new printmaking process. Developed in Japan 30 years ago, it
has just been recreated and introduced to the US by a Polish father-daughter team.
Combining elements of lithography, monotype, and woodcut, mokulito prints can stand
alone or become the perfect base for a mixed-media creation. This technique is accessible
to beginners: it uses plywood instead of plates or stone, and can be printed without a
press. Mokulito can produce results that are visually similar to lithography, but with the
addition of wood grain. This workshop is perfect for those who love to experiment with
the unexpected, get messy, and combine new and old techniques.

The cyanotype is typically an image rendered on paper in various shades of blue.
This entry-level workshop will introduce participants to; making simple negatives for printing, safe and proper materials handling, paper preparation and coating, exposure, processing, and toning.
 

We will also explore other materials on which to make cyanotypes. Participants are asked to bring their choice of a light-colored t-shirt or other article of clothing, swatch of canvas or other fabric, or any other material on which they'd like to experiment with this process.
 

Participants will be given instructions on how to digitally prepare image files and will then learn how to make digital negatives. This is very basic and very easy.
Come to class with your favorite photographic images in JPEG's on a thumb drive.

This workshop is designed to produced finished work which may be included in an exhibition held at the Ink Shop together with book produce by workshop participants from San Diego Book Arts

"Since 1985, when I dove into Artists' Books, my passion has been in inventing new structures for my works, Turning Leaves is one of my inventions. Imagine a box, cut it in quarters diagonally. Then we have four empty spaces. They will be hinged to a piece of flat cardboard so that they are connected. To cover and to fill the empty spaces is where your artistry comes in. You could use your own print proofs or purchased decorative papers, and collage with 2- and 3-dimensional materials is encouraged. The spaces will be filled with materials from nature (e.g., dry leaves, nuts, shells) or perhaps a broken mirror (in the case of Turning Leaves). The structure can be moved into many positions to become sculptural and architectural."
