3 hour workshop to schedule at PrintSpace or your own location. Great ice-breaker or bonding activity project.
Add your idea of Home to the Home Project! Construct your own collagraph plate based on the theme of "Home" and experiment with printing using various techniques and colors.
The Home Project is a massive printing project. The workshop can be brought to schools, shelters, community centers, soup kitchens, assisted living spaces, or hospitals. Participants will brainstorm and visualize what Home means to them. Collagraph plates will be explained, built, and printed using simple materials. We then print the collagraph plates in a variety of ways, allowing the group to understand the beauty and versatility of the process. This can also include printing collaboratively on larger papers, several homes together constituting a neighborhood.
Participants keep all of the prints produced during the workshop, but I will keep the plates for further printing. I want to take and mesh all these ideas of home into larger prints containing many plates, creating new communities and overlapping social strata. These prints typically take on housing issues such as redesigning, rezoning, and gentrification, yet they can also speak to memory and nostalgia.
