"Expanding the Digital Print to Uncommon Surfaces" Workshop

The first week of June 2009, I had the privilege of teaching a post conference workshop following "Off the Grid" the Surface Design Association Conference. During this workshop participants worked with digital printing on pimatex cotton, organdy, watercolor paper, metal screen, beverage cans, canvas, lace paper and a hand made substrate created with gel medium and cheesecloth.

The results for the workshop were exciting. Above are some of the examples of the surfaces that were printed in the workshop. All in all we printed 160 prints during the course of the workshop. My Epson 2400 was printing constantly and as usual it handled everything we needed it to. Pretty much all went smoothly and it was great working with all the participants.

One of the things I love the best about these workshops are the results students get from their creation. Being able to see the results on the last day is a unique experience and always inspiring!


  1. These student works are AWESOME!

    Obviously your class was inspired by your teaching, Kathyanne.

    I have this on my vision board: I teach a class at a venue where you are teaching, but at a different time so that I can take your class!

  2. Wow, Carol, let's make that happen! Any venues by you? I'd love to come to Canada:)

  3. These are GREAT Kathyanne! Looks like they had some fun. You are a vast wonderful well of creativity!!!

  4. Thanks Sheri, one of the greatest things about teaching one of these workshops is the variety of images on all these surfaces. It amazes me how wonderful they all turn out:)
