This course is intended for participants looking to broaden their understanding of stamp-making, printing with stamps on a variety of materials, and exploring pattern, with the possibility of creating resolved 2d and 3d projects.

Visiting Artist-in-Residence at KKV GBG, Waverly Liu from Guangzhou, China teams up with Eric Saline to guide participants through their experiments, beginning with developing an individualized “vocabulary” of stamps, using a range of materials as basic as carving into potatoes and oversized erasers, onto more sophisticated materials like laser-engraved photographic imagery onto custom-made foam rubber stamps. These matrices will be used to explore repetitive mark-making, over-printing, and patterning onto papers and textiles.

Waverly will bring many samples and ideas from her own art-practice, where stamped-patterns make their way into a variety of 3-dimensional forms and products. No previous experience or computer-skill is required, however, the course will be taught in English (Eric can translate for those who are a bit rusty in English)

What’s included: All materials that you need are included in the course cost, but if you want to bring your own materials to experiment with you’re welcome to. If you’re uncertain, get in touch with the course leaders.

Friday 6-9pm, light snacks provided: Intro to course, intro to key concepts like axis of symmetry/ tiling/ color-mixing, carving and printing. The idea would be to get people carving giant rubber erasers, potatoes, making rubber stamps with foam-rubbers as soon as possible to experiment with making different kinds of patterns on papers, textiles, and other 2d materials.

Eric can demonstrate laser engraving onto foam for making foam-rubber stamps (since this takes some time on the computer/ laser, it will happen on an availability-basis for those interested throughout the 2.5 course-days)

Saturday 10-12, 13-18: Intro and exploration into form, using previous day’s printed materials (sewing, fastening, origami, and so on)

for those printing on fabric, waverly will demonstrate a few methods to help make the fabric “stand.”

  • option 1. starching cotton fabric after printing is complete and ink is dry;
  • option 2. inserting thin copper wire along the lining to hope shape and form;
  • option 3. iron on hard lining on fabric;

Based on results, teachers will work to identify areas for further exploration with students in the remaining hours

Sunday 10-14: Continued experiments with stamping, engraving and making 3d forms. Working-light lunch provided, followed by clean-up & presentation of works.
