Takbon Texture Printmaking with Cindy Davis at New Museum Los Gatos

November 4, 2018 @ 10:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Explore the ancient process of Takbon, a traditional Korean printmaking technique for transferring the textures of objects onto paper. The result is similar to a rubbing, but instead of using friction and a crayon or charcoal, an inked dauber is tapped on the surface of the paper. This gentle method of tapping reveals minute details and allows for the arrangement of different objects in a single print. Novice and experienced printmakers  are invited to discover this unique approach to printmaking and experiment a variety of shape and texture combinations using natural objects, such as leaves, flat seashells, large feathers, as well as coins, buttons, keys, ceramic tiles, anything with texture and depth! Students are encouraged to bring a favorite short poem or haiku, which can be printed with an embossing label maker and illustrated. By the end of the workshop, students will take home 6-8 prints and a new found appreciation of an ancient art form.

About the Instructor:
Cindy Davis was introduced to printmaking while staying in Perugia, Italy where she became a student of artist and Franciscan Padre Diego Donati. Cindy helped form a print cooperative in Columbus Ohio, where for 20 years she has taught numerous classes in a variety of techniques.
