In and out of Sculptural Books (Part 1) | Kumi Korf  CLASS FILLED

Fri, 10/25 10am - 4pm

$90 non-associates / $76.5 associates ($20 for materials) 

 
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.

Mokulito is a printmaking process similar to lithography, but without complicated steps or use of acids and harsh solvents. The technique is relatively new, originating in Japan thirty years ago. Mokulito was recreated by a team of Polish lithographers, who shared their process at a workshop at the Southern Graphics Council Conference in Milwaukee this year. Because it uses plywood instead of plates or stone, Mokulito is flexible and
accessible to beginners.

This workshop offers spontaneity and playfulness, while learning a unique technique of printmaking.

The materials are inked and placed onto inked plexiglass, and transferred with an etching press onto dampened paper. It is an excellent technique to learn at any age, and works well in classroom settings. Come with or without experience and discover the joy of this technique of monotype.

Sun. 8/25 10am - 4pm

$180 non-associates / $153 associates ($20 for materials)

Come learn the magic of photo-lithography printing. For the first day of this intensive workshop we will focus on drawing on transparency film with grease crayons, inks and tusche. Photo-lithography is an aluminum plate that is covered with a photosensitive emulsion. A positive transparency, of Mylar film,  is placed in contact with the plate and exposed to ultraviolet light. After development, the  plate is rolled up with ink and printed through a litho press onto fine art paper. Plate preparation, registration, black and white image with color will be covered.

There will be a strong emphasis on experimentation.
