Irish Master Printmaker Ken Parker returns to Pratt to teach his unique collograph workshop: The Unexpected Image. A collograph is essentially a collage that is inked both by wiping and by rolling. This creative technique leaves room for lots of experimentation, and pushes the definition of a print. During this four day workshop we will cover ideas for the images, how to make the plate, the inking, and the printing, hopefully breaking rules along the way to create a collection of work to enhance any portfolio. All this and with Ken's great communication skills, not to mention Irish charm, magic is sure to happen!

Studying Venetian glassblowing techniques is considered an important step in a glassblower’s skill development and professional practice. The goal of this intensive review of Venetian glass techniques with  a  well-known maestro is to practice complicated traditional designs to express contemporary ideas in glass. Students will learn intricate techniques, including zanfirico, incalmo, reticello, and murrine, used to produce precisely blown and sculpted objects, from small bowls to large free-form works. Students will work with the maestro and have the  unique opportunity to develop glassmaking skills with high degree of accomplishment. Students should be well-versed in glass working and want the challenge of refining their skills through keen observation and daily studio time.

Prerequisite: At least 2 years of glass experience
