The Long Island Craft Guild is pleased to host Master Printer Dan Welden. Dan will give a presentation on his work and process including an inside look at the creative process of building a hand-crafted home. The presentation is free and open to the public.
Dan Welden is a master printmaker, painter, educator, and author. He has been making prints and works on paper for over 50 years. His work has been shown in international solo exhibitions in museums and galleries and group exhibitions in the U.S., Europe, China, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and Peru.
Dan is an innovator at the forefront of the alternative health- and safety-oriented movement of printmaking, and the originator of a technique called Solarplate. He is the co-author of “Printmaking in the Sun,” a comprehensive manual of Solarplate methods, and also produced an instructional film by the same name.
As a teacher, Dan continues to inspire students around the world. He has taught in numerous colleges and universities, and facilitates international workshops where he demonstrates how to make prints using the safer and greener methods of Solarplate etching without the use of acids or other dangerous chemicals.
