"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!
