Image transfer workshop- Spudnik Press

Last week I took a one-night workshop at Spudnik Press that focused on image transfers. I've used various image transfer methods in the past in my own work and in courses that I've taught but I felt like I needed a refresher. Two of my colleagues from Marwen were also taking the workshop and it was so fun! I learned a couple of new techniques that I'm excited to play around with some more- like using wintergreen oil, an icy/hot stick and a blender pen to transfer laserjet images. We also talked about acrylic/gel medium transfers which I've done before. It was so nice to work in a creative space with other people! I'm so used to working alone in my studio, I want to push myself more to take courses/workshops more.

During the Open House, Spudnik members will be providing free demonstrations. Visitors will be able to make their own greeting card or a patch with materials provided by the studio, and are encouraged to bring any addition materials to print on. Anyone interested in learning more about the studio is encouraged to come by, see our collection of prints, ask questions,and basque in the energy of community art making.

In the evening, festivities will move to Happy Dog Gallery. Jazz ensemble New Now Know How will perform. Complimentary beer will accompany a silent auction. The event is free, but all guests who contribute $10 will receive a complimentary print. $25 donations will receive a block printed T-shirt made on site.
