The Masur Museum of Art Announces:
Relief Printmaking Workshop
with Stefan Nodarse
Saturdays, January 8, 15, 22, and 29.
2:00 – 4:00 pm in the Carriage House at the Masur Museum of Art
This printmaking workshop is comprised of 4 classes, lasting 2 hours per class, during Saturdays in January 2022.
The class will cover the basics of relief printing with linoleum and will serve as an introduction to the various tools and inks used in relief printing. The class will look to the Japanese tradition of Ukiyo-e and the depictions of the Noh theater prints on display in the current Kōgyo: Japanese Theatre Woodblock Prints exhibition. We will also look to the techniques and imagery present in traditional Japanese printmaking, in combination with contemporary printing materials as inspiration for the creation of multicolor linocuts. The term ukiyo-e is translated to “pictures of the floating world” with depictions of everyday life, theater, human beauty, folk tales, and landscapes. The cost of the class will cover all the materials, provided by the museum, which students will keep. Beginners are welcome.
$80 museum members
(pricing includes materials students will take home)
Space is limited so please sign up well in advance. Payment in advance is required.
