Cone Editions Winter Three Person Collaborative Residency
Please Note: We can't guarantee the workshop dates will take place as listed if either the CDC or State of Vermont imposes new COVID-19 restrictions. We will always keep our attendees informed if anything changes.
This workshop is unique. It is based on the concept of the number three - as in three artists working in collaboration with one another (though you could choose to work separately or along side one another) using all of the resources and mediums available at Cone Editions Press.
The workshop costs of $10,000 is for a group of three of your choosing. All inkjet and house paper costs are included. However, the cost of platinum/palladium sensitizers and photogravure plates are additional if you work in these mediums. If you want to work on special media or materials we do not offer, you can purchase these and have them shipped to our studio. You need arrange for everyone to arrive here with you. We have arranged for the group to stay locally together in a B&B which features separate bedrooms but communal spaces and a kitchen (although they will provide the meals if you choose.)
Our concept is that three elements create a catalyst for creativity and the nurturing environment we provide will allow for an unfolding of the unknown. Imagine who you would like to work with and make that happen here. Imagine the possibilities of what that collaboration might produce working together on pieces or along side one another and individually on pieces. There would be no constraints from our side.
Our studio staff includes Jon and Cathy Cone, Walker Blackwell and Nathaneal Kooperkamp. Each has unique qualities and talents to offer you. As a team, I think you will find us to offer one of the more holistic printmaking experiences on the planet!
At Cone Editions Press we offer both color and Piezography black & white inkjet printing on a huge array of materials, platinum / palladium printing (both develop out and Malde-Ware process), and direct-to-plate photogravure printing. You are welcome to work with any or all of these mediums in our inkjet studio, our darkroom, and in our intaglio studio. You can combine the mediums if you wish and spend your time between all of the studios or concentrate your time with a single medium. It's up to you. You can work from your original source material using digital files, or negative/transparencies that we drum scan for you, or found objects, etc. We're absolutely amenable to your coming here to experiment.
To give you an idea of the fluidity of our platinum/palladium and photogravure printing we have invented digital negative and direct to polymer plate processes that are calibrated to match our displays. We can be proofing on the etching press within an hour of printing your image onto the photopolymer plate. We can be developing a platinum/palladium print within an hour of printing your negative. Of course, color and Piezography inkjet printing is nearly instantaneous. We think that you may spend more time contemplating the wonders of what we can print together than the actual time it takes to print.
