Printmaking + Drum Leaf Print and Book Workshop Instructed by Shelly DiCello
1754 East 47th Street
In this workshop you will learn how to create large-scale monotypes that use additive and subtractive processes. You will explore surface grounds, color theory, composition, edge of page, as well as transparent and opaque ink applications, multiple use stencils and transfer methods such as traced monotypes. The final work that you create will incorporate a personal narrative that utilizes repetition. This class also guides you through the process of drum leaf binding. You will collate your prints with the notion of sequence, non-sequence and pacing in regards to the temporal interaction with the book. The drum leaf structure is perfect for prints and drawings because the pages sit flat when the book is open and the structure will not be interrupted by a sewn binding stitch. You will also have the opportunity to investigate the cover, title page and colophon options. By the end of the course, you will have one or two complete drum leaf book structures.
