Solarplate Workshop with Dan Welden


In stock




SOLARPLATE WORKSHOP WITH DAN WELDENOctober 11 – 15th will be a special event ‘BY AND WITH’ Dan Welden on alternative printmaking. The 5-day workshop will be held at the beautiful Allen Hill Press Studio in Sharon, Vermont, hosted by printmaker Jeanne Amato.

Join us with a hands on workshop BY Dan and his daily morning teachings and the afternoons WITH his own personal art practice. Witness his spontaneous hands rejuvenating, structuring, altering and using creative juices to conquer fragmented, incomplete paperworks into the ‘hybrid finale.’

But wait, there’s more; with two years in the making, we are hoping to find a venue for the first Vermont screening of “Lasting Impressions”, a documentary about Dan and his contribution to the world of
printmaking. More information about this will be provided as we get closer to the workshop.

The autumn foliage should be in full regalia which will bring a little challenge to find accommodations.
To offset this, Jeanne can provide lodging (breakfast included) for 4 participants at the rate of $300 for the week ($75 per night). Private rooms, 3 with a full bed and 1 queen bed, one shared bathroom. There is also an outside shower and option to use our sauna if the weather is cool enough.
