CARVING AND PRINTING WITH RUBBER ERASERS

(Making one's own rubber stamps)

May 22nd, 2002  from 11:00 Am to 3:00 PM, or longer if needed.
[Sandwich lunch thrown in]

At: John Cotton Dana Library, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey,
Newark.

This is a class for anyone-from the serious artist who needs a simple
printing tool, teachers, parents, people who want to make a small personal
image to: the enthusiast who wants to print the wall of a room.  There are
as many ways to use these small devices as there are people. A sampling
would be Figures in books, Book plates, Logos, Business Cards, Text
Images, Borders, Augmenting larger prints and drawings, A way to emboss
softer materials such as fimo for jewelry, and, of course, wall paper.


The Workshop will cover the following:

 Carving the erasers
 Simple stamping with stamp pads.
 Other printing techniques such as overlap stamping (e.g., to make a herd
of animals).
 Registering of more than one stamp.
 Printing with oils.
 Printing with magic markers.
 How to reverse letters for texts.

General advice about these clever things-all questions appreciated and
answered.  (Sorry, we will not have time to print your wallpaper).

The workshop will be taught by Rand Huebsch, a book artist and printmaker
who teaches at the Center for Book Arts, New York and the Newark Museum,
among many places.  Also by Lois Morrison, book artist, occasional teacher
and a dabbler in at-home printing methods.
