Three-Plate Monotype & Stitch Shibori

Two Printmaking Workshops with Maine Mixed-Media Artist & Printmaker Kris Sader

We're delighted to announce that the accomplished printmaker, mixed media and installation artist Kris Sader will offer two workshops this February, during her RLV guest artist residency.

  • 3-Plate Monotype: Saturday, Feb. 16, 10am–4pm at RLV studios.
    This technique of monotype printing offers the opportunity of color mixing/interactions, and mark making that allows for luminosity of the paper to add excitement to the print. Download PDF to learn more.

  • Stitch Saburi (Japanese Tie-Dye): Saturday, Feb. 23, 10am–2.30pm at the Wilson Barn.
    Shibori (to wring, squeeze, press/shaped resist dyeing) is the name for Japanese Tie-dye. By restricting cloth 3 dimensionally with folds, crinkling or stitching, beautiful flat designs can be achieved. The results will show the technique used but will always be unique to that work session. Download PDF to learn more



The Rancho Linda Vista artists community is a pioneer in the emergence of Arizona’s vibrant arts scene.
Over the years many poets of note have spent time here—writing, giving public readings, exploring the desert, sharing ideas and collaborating with resident artists.


TELLING LIVES

Writing Intensive with William Pitt Root & Pamela Uschuk

Last May, RLV was was honored to have award-winning writers and editors, William Pitt Root and Pamela Uschuk lead its inaugural week-long poetry intensive.

Attended by poets from around the country, "Telling Lives" was an inspirational mixed genre, hands-on, generative writing intensive that focused on weaving poetry and lyric prose to create memoir.

At the conclusion, participating poets launched RLV’s 50th Anniversary Memorial Weekend Celebration with a reading of their works.

In addition to Bill and Pam, attendees included Whitney Judd, Mark Lee, Elizabeth Hellstern, Dave Ryan, Teri Hairston, Susan Foster, Mary Jane White, Jane Hipkins Sobie and Larry Griffin (pictured below).

Given the wonderful success of this year’s poetry intensive, we look forward to hosting another in 2019. Check back in the coming weeks for details.
