Wintergreen Transfer Workshop
- Ramona Lapsley
Wintergreen Oil is used as a medium to force copy ink out of copy paper onto another surface, in this case printmaking paper. We will take fresh (0-3 days) black and white photocopies, rub wintergreen oil on the back side, and transfer the image onto printmaking paper by using a printing press. This image can then be drawn, layered, or printed onto later. We will have time to do this transfer and then flexible with other printing processes as time and participant interest allows.
- Amy Bailey
Fold-forming is a metalworking technique created by Charles Lewton-Brain. Metal is folded, forged, annealed, and unfolded repeatedly to create complex forms without soldering. Interesting forms or textures can be achieved in a short period of time. Participants will use a thin gauge of copper with hammers, mallets, an anvil, vise, and rolling mill. During the workshop you will create many samples and shown how they can be applied towards jewelry or hollowware.
