Workshops

All our workshops are designed to offer you high-quality instruction and information in a relaxed and friendly setting. Ideas can be discussed and projects undertaken gradually at the pace of the student. Small group sizes and an informal atmosphere mean that you can learn from practice, observation, and discussion with other students. Workshops are held in our shop’s studio space, unless otherwise specified. Check back often for event dates and schedules. WE ARE 1976 loves to collaborate with artists, schools, art clubs, and other organizations for workshops. Please contact us for more information.

 

CYANOTYPE PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH



Cyanotype with illustration on top. 

Just added another workshop with the talented printer and paper artist Shamsy! -

Don't let all this Texas sunshine go to waste! Learn how to make cyanotypes with the
magic of the sun and three dimensional objects. We will coat our own paper with light
sensitive material and position our selected objects directly on the paper and expose
them with the power of the sun! Each person will leave with 3 completely original sun
prints as well as a handy dandy instructional packet, jam packed with useful resources! 

*** feel free to bring any small objects (no bigger than 5") to use as your subjects.
The flatter the object, the better. Ex: string, wrench, scissors, plant material etc...

LEATHER BOOKBINDING WORKSHOP ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 9TH



Leather Bookbinding Workshop with Tish Brewer. 

Hope y'all can join as on Thursday, August 9th for another workshop with the talented
Tish Brewer (who also  teaches the wildly popular (see here and here) terrarium workshop).
This time, she'll be teaching a leather bookbinding workshop - 

This soft cover leather pamphlet book is a structure inspired by early medieval
 bindings.
In this intro workshop, you'll learn tacketing (the method of attaching the blank
 pages
into the leather cover) and lacing (the method of joining corners, which also serves
 as
decoration), both done with strips of parchment. You'll also get to experiment with blind

tooling the leather for further decoration.
