Shakerag Workshop – Day One


Today is Day One of a five day Deconstructive Screening workshop I’m taking with Kerr Grabowski at St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School, in Sewanee, TN. Click here for descriptions of Shakerag Wokshops.

Already it’s an intensive day. We’ve made at least two screens, by applying thickened dye in some pattern, to a silk screen, letting it dry and then screening clear or lightly colored dye thickener (sodium algenate) through the screen; repeatedly until all the dye is gone. Each pull is different but still the same!!

This was the first screen made with bubble wrap, a doilie, and a mesh bag.

This was part of it printed on newspaper

First project, multiple printings

Second project – screen made with plastic fencing, large bubble wrap, and a glue gun. This is just the beginning. Tomorrow, I hope to apply other techniques to the two pieces.
