Create a papercutting design and apply it as a template onto silkscreens to print in colors.
This silkscreen printing and papercutting workshop explores the connection between art and the everyday through the Chinese philosophy Taoism: the ancestral influence of Japanese Zen. After discussions, we will experience some of the principles through image inspiration from Chinese papercutting. We will create our own designs, then apply them as templates onto silkscreens to print in colors and multiples. Come away with this collection set of printed papers with ideas and skills to make future prints. All skill levels are welcome.
