POSTPONED – Play! A Screen Print Weekend with Carrie Burckle, Inspired by Sarajo Frieden
March 14 @ 10:00 am - March 15 @ 4:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO AN UNDETERMINED FUTURE DATE.
On Saturday and Sunday, March 14th and 15th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, please join us in hosting Textile Arts LA’s Carrie Burckle for a weekend-long screen printing workshop where you’ll explore chance and improvisation as playful strategies incorporating collage, stamping, cut outs, and painting for designing prints.
You will discover relationships in line, shape and color as your shapes and patterns unfold, meander and snake back in on themselves, creating new relationships and connections. You may explore mono prints, cutout shapes, appliqué ideas, and more. Sister Corita Kent says, “Consider/regard everything an experiment”. And “Nothing is a mistake”.
The weekend will be an immersion in play, in freeing up blocked energy and exploring intuition and improvisational strategies. Students will create stencils for mono printing and over printing onto any cloth scraps, up cycled clothes, misshapen cuts, for use singularly or for extended quilts, patchwork, appliqué etc. There are no preconceived outcomes, only potential for further investigations. One exercise will include a print exchange, where each student will receive a print from each of the other students, creating an overprinted, collage piece.
Wear comfortable clothing, shoes, and an apron. You will be standing on a concrete floor when printing. Comfortable shoes are a must.
*We will take a lunch break: students are welcome to step outside for a quick walk to The Co-Op Market / Deli or one of the restaurants in the Helms Complex, or bring your own lunch.
This class is intended for fine artists, designers, painters, printmakers, surface designers and general enthusiasts. Class size limited to 10. Students of all levels welcome.
MATERIALS PROVIDED FOR USE: Small handheld screens, inks, squeegees/spreaders, plastic sheet stencils, several cotton fabrics, including the fabric intended for the shared overprinting exercise. We encourage you to bring your own pre-laundered natural fiber fabrics, patches, off cuts or clothing, as this practice lends itself well to piece work / collage. Printing tables are 4ft x 8ft, with some of the 8 ft length used for material prep. $25 material fee payable to instructor at the class, please!
Carrie Burckle is an artist, designer, and educator. She has a BFA in Textile Design, as well as an MFA in Fibers from CSULB, where she has taught for the past 17 years. She is also a co-founder of Textile Arts LA.
