Intro to Linocut
with Neil Brigham
Saturday, September 25, 10-5
$140 non-members                    
$125 members

As in the tradition of woodcut printmaking, we will explore the direct, graphic and fun aspects of relief printmaking using linoleum. The ease of working with linoleum offers opportunities for bold, decorative designs as seen in the linocut prints of artists like Picasso and Matisse. In this workshop, we will start with a simple drawing that will then be transferred onto the linoleum block. Using this line drawing as a guide, students will then prepare the block for printing by carving away areas of linoleum using the cutting tools. Each student will create multiple prints on specialty papers as well as card stock to make his or her own cards.

Photo-Based Intensive
with Nancy Diessner
October 9/10, 10-5
$300 non-members
$270 members

Photography and Printmaking are not strangers to each other, and in fact can work together beautifully in several different processes. This workshop will introduce you to the magic of two distinct photo-based printmaking techniques: Pronto Plates and Photopolymer Intaglio, using a photo-sensitive polymer plate. These two processes are much safer than traditional photo-etching, which relies on several hazardous chemicals.

We'll begin with Pronto Plates, appreciating the simplicity, immediacy and relative unpredictability of the process. At the end of the first day and into the second day we'll turn to Photopolymer Intaglio, a process that has the greatest potential to approximate the tonal richness of a photograph. At the end of the second day, we'll see what can happen when we combine these two very different photo-based processes in a single print.

Making Prints Into Books
with Joyce Silverstone and
Meredith Broberg
Wednesday evenings, 6-9 PM
October 20 - November 17
$325 non-members
$290 members

Books can be very satisfying to make and very engaging to view.  Here's a chance to learn three book forms that are particularly enjoyable; each one is simple enough to learn in an evening, and versatile enough to offer many possibilities for variations. We'll start the series with two evenings of printing with Joyce, who will introduce viscosity monotype and transfer drawing.  These methods are spontaneous ways of creating richly colorful prints that will be designed to fit and flow into the book structures.
We'll transform these prints into book pages in the last three evenings with Meredith.  We'll learn how to make a drum leaf book, a case binding (with a hard cover) and several folded structures, including Hedi Kyle's panel book.  The technical aspects will be supplemented with short exercises to help you develop your content.  No experience necessary, just curiosity!

Chine colle is a process whereby a thinner sheet of paper is adhered to a backing sheet during the printing process. Gain insight into this process through demonstrations and individual work with the instructor. We will learn how to cook and prepare the wheat paste adhesive, various application methods, pre-application methods, proper dampening and misting techniques, plate and press preparation, and corrections after printing. We will also discuss and experiment with the different types of papers used in the process. Some printing experience is recommended for participants, who are all asked to bring at least one pre-worked plate to class.

Accidents Will Happen: Viscosity Monotype
with Joyce Silverstone
Saturday, October 30, 10-5
$140 non-members           
$125 members

Viscosity monotype with water-based inks involves a loose, painterly, and often, thrilling exploration playing the edge between accident and control.  Create subtle, spontaneous, one-of-a kind prints on delicate papers, using modified inks. Thick and thin inks resist each other in ways that allow for beautiful color interactions in delightfully unpredictable ways.  Learn some of the tricks to making this fun way of exploring color work for you, as you add to your printing vocabulary.

Discover or reconsider and renew your personal connection to drawing. We'll explore a variety of monotype methods of immediate mark-making. On and off the press, we will use Akua Kolor drawing tools, (the coolest squeeze bottles and drawing needles ever!) and transfer drawing techniques to create multi-layered prints.  Students will quickly generate a series of monotypes that explore the touch of responding to forms found in nature and the language of marks particular to printmaking. Instruction will cover modifying inks to enable you to create satisfyingly dark, crisp lines, simple and easy registration methods, and guided practice experiences in drawing to expand your expressive possibilities.

This workshop will focus on taking your introduction to photopolymer intaglio to the next level. We'll work on refining your process to improve your resulting images; we'll expand your approach to these plates by integrating drawing tools and surface manipulation; and we'll be layering plates by adding other photo-based and/or monotype processes. Whether you just learned how to process photopolymer plates and are eager to know more, or had your introduction several years ago and didn't know where to go from there, this workshop is for you. Emphasis will be placed on individual attention. If you have not been introduced to photopolymer intaglio technique, but are interested in participating in this workshop, consider an Individualized Teaching session to prepare you.

Robin McCloskey

Class #115 December 4, 11: Saturdays 10am - 4pm
Tuition $192  Materials $57  Total Cost $249

Photo-etching isn't just for photographers! Photo polymer plates are easy to process and present a great option for turning a hand drawn mark into an intaglio print. Why would you want to try this process? Plates are capable of reproducing marks that can't be created with traditional etching means. Small drawings can be enlarged, large drawings reduced in scale. Monotype marks can be editioned by creating a positive drawing on mylar and exposing to a photo-etching plate. We will do lots of experimentation, and you will have etching plates that print beautifully without the need of acids or grounds. Enrollment is limited to 8 participants.

Robin McCloskey received her MFA in printmaking from Pennsylvania State University. A former Kala Fellow, Robin was awarded the Peninsula Arts Grant for her project Sequoia Sempervirenns. Twice nominated for the SECA award, her work won the Gold Prize in Printmaking in the 8th International Print and Drawing Biennial in Taipei, Taiwan. She has given workshops throughout the US, most recently at the Frontiers in Printmaking conference at Illinois State University. She currently teaches at Dominican University in San Rafael.

SEV SHOON Arts Center   
Workshops in 2010

2862 NW Market Street
Seattle, WA 98107
t  206-782-2415
Sev Shoon Arts Center began in 1991, in response to the art community's need for a printmaking studio in Seattle. It is owned and operated by Dionne Haroutunian who came to Seattle from Switzerland in 1985. Inspired by the books she had read about the Impressionists and the Dadaists, Dionne had dreams of a community of artists who would meet in little cafes and reinvent the world! Sev Shoon is as close as she could get to that! Drawing on her Armenian heritage, Dionne named the center "Sev Shoon" which translates as "Black Dog" the nickname of one of her favorite "adopted" uncles; she figured it would be good luck, and it has been.

Henrik Boegh International Workshops - Non-Toxic Intaglio

October 16th - October 24th 2010
7 working days from 9 am - 5 pm = 60 hours

The printmaking course is held in the lovely little Andalucian mountain town of Capileira, in the Sierra Nevada mountains, 1,600 metres above sea level. The ancient Moorish town with its white houses, flat roofs and cairn-like chimneys is a true architectural gem. Buildings, aqueducts etc. are all included by preservation orders, and the Sierra Nevada mountains themselves are designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.  Just below Capileira, the cold, clear melt water from the perpetual snows of the Sierra Nevada (literally: the snowy mountain range) forms the rushing streams of the Rio Poqueira, tempting the passer-by to enjoy a refreshing dip in the hot hours of the afternoon.

In these surroundings, the printmaker Henrik Boegh and the painter Aase Hoejer have created studios in a 500-year-old Moorish house with adjoining orchard in the deepest respect of the original architecture. For the past 20 years, the studios and workshops have provided the setting for summer courses in painting, photography - and now, also printmaking.
The softly sculpted mountains are intersected by deep, dramatic gorges and melt water streams, providing a breathtaking abundance of artistic subjects, the like of which is found in few other places in Europe. We work every day from 9 am to 5 pm in the printmaking studio.All over the house and garden you have free access to our wireless network.

You will be staying in the small hotel in Capileira with access to the swimming-pool.

This seven working-days course teaches all techniques with the non-toxic acrylic etching system as well as all techniques with photopolymer film., combinations with monotype, carborumdum etc.

The non-toxic acrylic etching system includes:
Liquid Hard Ground, Roll-on Hard Ground, Roll-on Soft Ground, Spray-on Aquatint, Lift Ground and Direct Washings

The photopolymer techniques include:
Washing techniques, different uses of photocopies for etchings, digitally generated stencils, photopolymer gravure with one or  two layers of photopolymer film, and genuine photogravure (etched with photopolymer film used as resist).

Furthermore, we will work with other and more advanced techniques such as combinations of photopolymer gravure and acrylic etching grounds (aquatint, hard ground, etc.), waterbased mono types etc.

During the workshop the participants will become completely familiarised with the different techniques and hence be able to make in-depth experiments with personal favourites.


Materials are included. We  recommend that you bring your personal working tools and eventually digital camera, CD's, Labtop ect.

Steve Walters' Screwball Press   


Since 1991, Steve Walters (under the moniker Screwball Press) has been printing posters, CD packaging, and a variety of other collectible items for Chicago's indie rock community. Over the years, he has had the opportunity to train and/or work with some of his favorite local artists including Bob Hartzell, Kristen Thiele, Jay Ryan, Mike Benedetto, Keith Herzik, and Jason Frederick. Around 2000, Steve looked back on ten years of work and realized that working with these people was the single most satisfying aspect of Screwball Press. So he began to implement the Screwball Academy based on the extension of the Minutemen's "band in every garage" credo. Steve wanted to see a printer in every band. 

At present, Steve has taught 36 people over the past 18 months, most of whom still use the facilities to print personal projects as well as a few who run their own printing businesses.


Screenprinting is a physical, hands-on process and so is the course. Students come in with a piece (or 2) of black and white line art and leave with up to 50 3-color, 11"x17" prints that they produced themselves. This can be done in a single 6-8 hour session or can be broken up into two shorter sessions. After that, you are free to come back whenever you want to use the facilities.

To schedule a class, email Steve at
