Please join us for the Frederic W. Goudy Workshop:
The Plate and the Print
Sunday, September 18, 2011
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Scripps College Press
Scripps College, California
The Sandragraph and other relief print processes that fall between
the categories of printing and painting will be the focus of this
one-day workshop. We will make and print from several low-tech
matrices to create a wide range of tonal and painterly images from
simple relief surfaces. Most of the plate-making materials we will
use can be found in your studio. Many examples will be shown
detailing how these plates have been used for illustrations, book
covers, tint blocks, monoprints and monotypes in Turkey Press
publications. Each workshop participant will be supplied with a kit
that includes wood blocks, cloth, vinyl and paper for printing. The
gel medium for making plates during the class will be provided.
Sandra Reese: My work as designer, printer, papermaker and binder
has developed over the last three decades precisely because of the
environment established and maintained by Harry Reese through the
work of Turkey Press several years before we met. Each of us absorb,
interpret and reinvent what has come before us in different ways.
Little did I know that teaching physical science and art—whose
parallel essence is to understand the nature of materials—to
sixth-graders, would be the stepping stone to the rigors of making
books as an art form: attention to detail, repetition, physical
stamina, and a longing for tactility.
