Graven Feather Poster Printmaking: Linocut + Letterpress Printing

Join Pam Lobb from Graven Feather for a fun-filled day of printmaking!

We will start by learning how to use a small 3×5 Kelsey letterpress and hand printing stations you’ll be able to experiment with 1-3 word messages. 

Then, students will focus on the composition of images and poster elements to create a graphic poster print. Techniques will be explained and demonstrated including successful image transfer, carving, inking and printing on a printing press.

Artist Instructor: Pam Lobb of GRAVEN FEATHER STUDIO

Schedule
Our full day program schedule consists of daily sketching exercises, 2hr morning and afternoon studio sessions, and various outdoor activities.  We believe an important part of the artistic process is having a good mental and physical balance.  Each day we will be going outside (weather permitting) to experience our neighbourhood and how it can inspire creativity!   Our camp takes place in our ARTiculations Studio.

What to bring:
-A full lunch, reusable water bottle and 2-3 snacks (nut free)

-Clothes for getting messy!

-Appropriate footwear;close-toed shoes for in the studio, walking/running shoes
A reusable bag or container to bring home artwork

-Appropriate indoor & outdoor attire: sunscreen, hat, raincoat, mitts, snow pants etc  

*NOTE: unless it’s -30, a monsoon or the end of the world, we go outside EVERY DAY.  Please make sure your child comes prepared and dressed appropriately to ensure outdoor fun time enjoyment for the entire group!
