Now in its third year, the Southwest Print Fiesta is a celebration of all things printed! Join us October 5-7, 2018 in beautiful downtown Silver City, NM to experience the awesome variety of work being made by printmakers from all over New Mexico, as well as El Paso, Tucson, Phoenix, and all points in between. Come take a workshop, shop the vendor market, cheer on the steamroller printing spectacle, and soak up the inky good vibes...
In this workshop, participants will learn about the past and present history of wood type, set compositions of their own choosing, and learn to print using our vintage Showcard sign press or Challenge proof press. Each attendee will leave with a stack of 15 posters of their own design!
In this workshop, students will learn multiple techniques for monoprinting and image transfer. We will begin class with several demos covering trace monotype, collagraph, monoprinting and more. We will discuss ways of building layers within a print using multiple techniques and each student will have time to experiment at the press.
