This workshop is taught by artist Rebeka Burns, is beginner friendly and open to all! At least 50% of workshop space is reserved for artists with disabilities. Fast, flexible, and adaptive portable approaches for building and printing images will be explored as tools for documentation, social commentary, and community-building. Participants will work together to create a series of large-scale collaborative prints, and a print to take home.
The workshop will begin with a discussion of contemporary works that use printmaking as a tool for political and social activism, and a demonstration of simple monoprint, collagraph, and relief techniques. All of the techniques learned can be completed indoors or out, without a printing press and using only a small set of easy-to-transport tools.
