Friday, April 6 -- 11 am - 5 pm -- Bally's Event Center, Demo Space C


Demonstrator: Leah Kiczula


Straight Kitchin’ Printing will demonstrate three techniques for printing without a press that can be done anywhere with a flat surface and some elbow grease, like a kitchen! These methods use easily attainable, environmentally conscience, and sustainable materials allowing anyone to pull a print without special tools. In this demonstration, I will go through three kitchin’ printing processes, kitchen lithography, pasta press pulling, and stencil screen print. All three will produce small, simple, and experimental prints which can be attainable for printmakers of all skill levels. With common materials and a clean table top, Straight Kitchin’ Printing allows for quick prints at your fingertips.
