Banner and Flags Worksop With Roberto Rossi
May 3 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
One event on May 3, 2020 at 11:00 am
This four-hour workshop will engage participants in an exploration of Opus 40’s site and trails to collect samples of the property’s vegetation, as well as any curiosities that we come by.
The harvest of found objects will then be repurposed as materials for printmaking: twigs will be glued to large round templates for making monotype plates; leaves and sturdier artifacts will be used for creating stencils; other found objects will serve as a the basis for free-hand creations using drawing fluid and screen filler on small silkscreen frames.
The designs created by participants will be artfully arranged by common consensus on large 8 ft. by 3 ft. sheets of different colored muslin or lining for the crafting of large-scale banners.
The rest of the workshop will be dedicated to the completion of this set of banners, as participants carefully ink their designs and help each other in applying them to the fabric.
The creations will be hung in the gallery of the museum for drying, in preparation of a season of exposition at Opus 40.
