Photo Transfer: Image and Memory
with Keegan Luttrell
Image transfers have a beautiful, ethereal quality and are extremely versatile in their application. Explore the materials and methods used to make successful image transfers, combining collage, painting and drawing to create layered images. Learn several photo transfer techniques (including solvent, acrylic and transparency alcohol transfers) and how they work with different surface materials, such as paper, wood, canvas, etc.
As a class we will consider the process of image replication in relation to memory, through discussion and looking at the work of contemporary and historical artists. Participants will leave with the knowledge to continue experimenting with image transfers as well as a conceptual framework to explore artistic notions of memory.

with Loren Britton
Get your hands wet in paper pulp while exploring the process of papermaking! This workshop takes a fresh look at the everyday material of paper, using an approach that is tactile, colorful and playful. Take your paper scraps and transform them into a new ‘drawing’, ‘painting’ or hybrid sculpture.
Pulling from histories of collective making we will explore the materiality of paper together. Learning from artist, Loren Britton, who uses this process in their own work, we will process, pulp, practice, and produce pulp works that embed bits of our own and collective history into a new object.

Photo Transfer Salon
with Keegan Luttrell
Join us for an evening of art making in a laid back studio setting. Photo transfer is an accessible mixed media technique that can produce beautiful and layered results when combined with watercolor or acrylic paint. Using a non-toxic solvent, Keegan will guide the class step by step through the image transfer technique. Each student will have a unique image that can then be painted over to create a finished work.
All materials are included, however you are welcome to bring your own xerox images. We will start off with a complementary glass of Prosecco to get the creative juices flowing!
Also available for private groups.
Cost: 43 Euro (includes all materials and a glass of Prosecco)
