We spent today at Atelier Meridian, printing the plates we made yesterday at Elise Wagners studio. tomorrow will also be spent printing.

Those bad women Elise and Jane had bought us some voodoo donuts for breakfast. Words fail me!
Let this photograph speak instead:

Enough said!

The Atelier is a large space, with three beautiful etching presses, including a big Takach, and a letterpress. There is also a Lino press. Full membership of the atelier is $125 a month, and gives you unlimited access 24/7!

We finished the afternoon with a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers. Very civilised!

We have arrived in Portland, Oregon, to take a three day Encaustic Collagraph workshop with Elise Wagner. We are staying with Barbara Mason. Barbara is a printmaker of many years standing. I met her more than a decade ago, when I taught a workshop for her here in Portland.

Elise works together with Jane Pagliarulo, who, together with Barbara, founded a Print Studio called Atelier Meridian.

Here are some shots of Elise’s Studio. Brittany, Jane’s intern, is in the second shot. All the work on the walls is by Elise Wagner.

And here are some of the plates I made. Tomorrow we spend the day printing at the Atelier, and I will see what I can do with my plates. The scraper above the plates is used to carve the wax down.
We will be using Akua Inks.

I’m busy planning a trip to the US next month to take a number of workshops in encaustic. Im going first to Wax Works West to do the R&F Advanced Teaching Workshop with Laura Moriarty, then having some time to do a bit of exploring of Northern California.

Then its off to Portland, Oregon, for a collagraph workshop with Elise Wagner, and finally to Santa Fe to do one of Paula Roland’s Mark Making Workshops. My friend Angela Noble is coming with me. I expect to come home exhausted but full of ideas. ¬†Any suggestions from readers for must see things in any of these places would be gratefully received!
