Layer Upon Layer: Utilizing Stencils in Papermaking and Printing with Cynthia ThompsonMagic 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.
