    Instructor Bio:
    Virginia Davison began her artistic career in college as a painter. By graduation she had found her voice carving plaster. For the next 25 yrs, she carved alabaster and marble, but at the same time became an avid gardener, working the land around her two acre parcel on Bainbridge. After her two kids graduated college, she reinvented herself again by taking classes at Pratt in collage and printmaking. Her years since 2007 have been devoted to these art forms. She has shown her work locally at the Bainbridge Library, Grace Church, Blackbird Bakery, the Big Art Studio on Day Road and the BARN Bazaar.

    This two-day workshop is the whole enchilada: type selection, type setting, paper selection, and ink mixing. Learn the basics of letterpress printing, its language, the tools, and the materials. Dive into the intricacies of the craft while working on BARN’s simplest press.

    We'll start by scooting through letterpress details: working with type, locking up a form, and preparing a project for printing. This is a skills and techniques workshop intended to ready you to work on your own projects with confidence during monitored Open Studios.

    Bringing together BARN’s Print & Book Studio and Fiber Arts Studio, this two-part workshop will introduce students to the fundamentals of screenprinting.

    Screenprinting is one of the most accessible printmaking processes, and we will orient to the process in a way that makes it practical to replicate in a variety of settings. Screenprinting, or silkscreening, has a fairly short but incredibly rich history of use as a medium for surface design on textiles, as well as a printmaking technique on paper. We will discuss the history of the process, walk through the materials needed, learn how to expose screens, practice different techniques that can be used to create art to burn onto our screens, and, of course, print! 

    Students will leave this workshop with a screen burned with art of their choice as well as whatever they chose to print their art on.

    Materials provided will include photo emulsion, printmaking paper, transparency paper, natural fiber fabric, and a zine (how-to guide).

    Details:

    • There is a materials fee of $20 included in the price of class. 
    • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Please review our safety protocols before registering.

    Instructor Bio:

    Katey Rissi says, "I am an artist, educator, medicine maker, and activist. My artmaking practice is interdisciplinary and I shift between printmaking, illustration, collage, natural sculpture, textiles, and photography. I am interested in ancestral skills and ecology and these often inform my work. Some themes I find myself returning to in my work include environmental grief, ancestor work, unsettling/decolonization, and what it means to be connected to community and place.'

    Katey holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Western Michigan University with a focus in Photography and Printmaking.
