Bookmaking in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Working with Mexican artists from the art group La Malaguas, students in this week-long intensive will study book arts while dwelling in a beachfront studio in Puerto Vallarta. Using painting and drawing along with basic printmaking and book binding techniques, students will create unique artist books. Techniques include photo transfers, lithography, monotypes, etching, and finishing methods. This workshop will culminate with a show of the books in Seattle. Beginners are welcome.
Czech Glass Intensive in Kamenicky Senov, Czech Republic
In collaboration with the Kamenicky Senov School of Industrial Arts for Glass, Pratt has organized a two-week intensive program designed to teach students the technical, intellectual and artistic processes of traditional Czech moldmaking, kiln casting and coldworking – three techniques often used in making art glass but lesser known than glassblowing. Kiln casting involves melting glass into a mold to create sculptural forms. Coldworking involves using tools and abrasives to cut or engrave glass. Pratt’s Czech Glass Intensive program is a unique opportunity for students to study with master Czech artists in the birth place of kiln-casting. Students will be able to take advantage of the school’s well-equipped studios for glass and other mediums. The Czech Glass Intensive program will include hands-on demonstrations, open studio time to practice moldmaking techniques, and day trips to regional glassmaking facilities and studios.
