Lisa Grey Class Information

Fabric and Paper Printing Extravaganza         2-5 days                               

 Explore the creative potential of the reusable Gelli Arts™ Gel Printing Plate. Use purchased or handmade tools and found objects to build up layers and experiment with resists, stencils and ghosts while creating unique prints or background images for further embellishment.  A variety of acrylic based paints and inks will be used as we investigate the infinite possibilities.
Materials fee for paint, paper and other shared materials supplied by me: $20/student.


Collage From Your Collections              (1-5 days, preferably at least 2)

Explore the art of collage using your own painted papers and fabrics as well as ephemera such as used tea bag papers, pattern paper pieces, old book pages, newspapers, magazines and more. Quickly design and glue down several small studies for future exploration or work on a larger piece or two. Simple framing or display options will be discussed.
Materials fee for glue, paper substrate and fusible web supplied by me: $15,00 per student.


Fold, Clamp, Wrap and Print with Rust            2-5 days

We will explore multiple ways to pattern paper and/or fabric using found rusted objects along with household staples such as tea, coffee, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, soy milk and candle wax to shift colors or work as resists in the prints. Working small, we will create distinctive prints to use as is or as a jumping off point for further printing, stitching and embellishing.

Lisa will describe, demonstrate and show samples of how she makes a practice of picking up bits of rusty metal on daily walks, then uses those to print papers and fabrics which are further embellished with mono-printing and often combined with other fabrics to make mixed media artwork.

The rusted bundles will have to sit at least a day or two before they are ready to be opened and worked on further. There will be minimal prep work required before the class begins.
Materials fee for shared materials supplied by me: $15/student.
