Workshop Overview

Explore the Sitka grounds at Grass Mountain, discovering patterns in the natural environment and creating sketches that will be the inspiration for a series of Chine Collé papers. Back in the studio, sketches are transferred to Kozo paper with Micron pens and other tools, and drawing guides are created on the back of prepared Plexiglas plates. Next, we paint on the Plexi plates using watercolor paints and pencils, building translucent layers and allowing the plates to dry. Using wheat paste as glue, the painted plate and Chine Collé paper are printed together onto dampened Stonehenge paper with the press.
