January Workshops at IS Projects!

IS Projects will be ringing in the new year with some fun, intensive workshops. Launch into 2018 with a few new skills under your belt ranging from collagraph, to screenprinting, to drop spine binding. Space is limited, so please sign up today at http://www.isprojectsfl.com/workshops/

Workshop #1
Collagraph Printing Intensive
Friday, January 5th: 6 - 8pm
Saturday, January 6th and Sunday the 7th: 10am - 6pm (with break for lunch)
Instructor: Sammi McLean
In this 3 part workshop, participants will explore texture and form in the uniquely sculptural process of Collagraph printing. Collagraph encourages experimentation through reusing and recycling found textures of all types. Participants will learn how to control value and line through a variety of methods of collaging mixed materials onto a print matrix, as well as the subtleties of inking and wiping a plate. Participants will leave this workshop with an edition of original prints pulled off an etching press.

Workshop #2
Screenprinting Intensive
Friday January 12th: 6 - 8pm
Saturday January 13th and Sunday the 14th: 10am - 6pm (with break for lunch)
Instructor: Ingrid Schindall
This is a 3 part all inclusive screenprinting intensive.This workshop is limited to 4 participants so everyone will receive specific and personal instructions and assistance. This intensive is designed not only to produce an edition but to also instill the foundation of screenprinting knowledge so that all participants can do this process on their own later on. All necessary materials will be provided, however you are welcome to bring anything you’d like to print on.

Workshop #3
Drop Spine Binding with Beth Sheehan
Saturday January 20th & Sunday the 21st: 10am-5pm (with break for lunch)
Instructor: Beth Sheehan
This Drop-Spine Drumleaf book is a simple glued structure that lays incredibly flat and eliminates the need to print on the front and back of a sheet of paper. In this two-day workshop, students will learn the properties of book materials, how to bind pages together, and how to create the wonderful hard-covers that drop out of the way to allow a flat open surface. Discussion will focus on variations of the binding, advantages to this binding, and problem solving. It’s ideal for photographers, printmakers, zinesters, or anyone that just wants to make a beautiful book. All materials are included and no previous book experience required!
