A Matter Of Ink
by Olivia Sautreuil

A workshop around silkscreen, about transferring material onto a surface. From pigments, to colored material, including food and dyes.
During the workshop, the participant will create their own ink to print a series of pattern, inspired by colored cement tile. Mainly produced in Portugal, Spain, North of France/Belgium and Liban, these tiles are designed as simple geometric and ornamental shapes that are combined to create large scale pattern.
A series of silkscreen frames will be prepare to choose from and participants will pick up the design they want to combine to create series of square to compose their own pattern.
The ink will be produced out of food (like beetroot), pigments, acrylic, terra-cotta… any sort of colored pigments.
The final outcome will present different textures/shape/smell…

After completion of the workshop you should be able to:
- have a basic understanding of the silkscreen process, and how material is getting transferred onto another surface.
- be able to mess up with material and create your own paint/ink
- be able to set up a very rough/DIY silkscreen studio, using paper cut stencil.

Student should bring before hand:
- any colored material as a paste or as a thin powder.
Beetroot purée works, smashed broccoli works, paprika works, safran works really well (but is really expensive…)
If you bring organic material, be aware that your print might evolve in time (meaning rot… therefore changing color and texture…).

And you will leave with a customized shopping bag!

Dessine moi des boucles FOR ever
by Mark Webster  and Louis Éveillard

Ce workshop accueillera des graphistes qui ont déjà quelques notions de programmation en Processing mais qui souhaitent approfondir les bases en travaillant sur un thème spécifique. Le workshop s’attachera à présenter un concept clé de la programmation, la boucle FOR, qui permet la répétition d’instructions dans un programme. Grâce à cette petite formule magique, nous verrons ensemble comment créer un système de générateur de motifs graphiques et par la suite comment le développer à ses besoins personnels.

Le workshop sera mené par Mark Webster et Louis Éveillard et dans le but d’encourager les participants à expérimenter de nouvelles possibilités graphiques tout en favorisant une meilleur compréhension du code comme véritable outil créatif au sein du processus de conception.

Ce workshop s’adresse premièrement aux débutants mais nous n’excluons pas des personnes plus expérimentés qui ont peut être envie de travailler sur un concept plus avancé, en respectant bien sûr le thème imposé.
