      Workshop – Utah

       

      Layer Upon Layer: Utilizing Stencils in Papermaking and Printing with Cynthia Thompson

       

      Magic happens when letterpress printing combines with the basics of hand papermaking. Focusing on the expanded use of the stencil, participants create a multi-layered broadside edition and a handmade paper folio. Each participant forms handmade sheets of paper containing their unique watermark from a stencil designed and created using demonstrated techniques. Expanded demonstrations of papermaking artistry illustrate innovations such as “line bleeding,” where pigmented pulp is flooded through a stencil to create an image. Applying various methods and imagery, participants craft and use a second set of stencils to print on the flatbed presses. Following detailed demonstrations of pressure printing, ink modification, and printing techniques, participants produce a multiple-layered print on handmade paper. Discussion of work incorporating pressure printing with other media such as woodcut, digital prints, and hand papermaking guarantees that scintillating conversations rule the day.
