Photo Transfer Workshop with Mehreen (Lali) Khalid
November 16 and 23, 6-8 p.m. each day
$50 Registration Fee.
This two-day intensive workshop will explore different methods of photo-transfers. You will use a variety of materials and transfer on wood, ceramic tile, paper, canvas, glass etc. Each student will pick a theme or concept and work on it for the duration of the class to develop a series of photographs, and then will transfer those photographs onto these unique mediums. Ultimately you will produce 3-5 final pieces based around a theme. The final pieces will be hung in a show at the MACC.
-A couple of printed photographs (using a laser printer) onto regular
printing paper. MUST BE LASER PRINTS, NOT INKJET. The copy should be the mirror image of how you would like it to appear on the wood.
-2-3 light-colored wood pieces or panels. Make sure the wood pieces are nice and smooth. Get them the same size of your printouts. Lowes has a wide selection of wood pieces. Try and get wood that has some girth to it. Oak, poplar are good.
-Bone folder or large paddle pop stick (edge of a gift card works)
-Matte gel medium (found in acrylic paints section of the art store).
-Two different brushes (I prefer foam, can use bristle for more texture)
-Towel/old t-shirt rag
-Scrap paper & towels to protect your work surface
