About the Teaching Artist

Dalani Tanahy is a native of San Diego, California with maternal roots from Waikapu, Maui. A lifelong artist in many media, she was drawn to kapa making over 15 years ago and stayed with it because of its diversity and rareness. Dalani’s favorite kapa to make are the ones people will use, whether a pa‘u to wear for a wedding, a baby’s blanket, or burial kapa, she feels proudest of the kapa that is made for actual use. She is known for making soft and pliable kapa. With kapa education always being at the forefront of her work, she enjoys teaching students about the ingenuity, patience, and artistry of not only Hawaiians, but all of our ancestors who respected and worked with the ‘aina. Dalani’s work was recently featured Mohala Hou Ke Kapa / Kapa Blossoms Anew, an exhibition at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. kapahawaii.com

An Introduction to Lithography: Paper and Pronto-Plates #1074

This introductory class in lithography will cover the fundamental principal of lithography; the repulsion of oil and water. In this 2-day intensive workshop, this course will utilize regular copy paper and the Xerox machine, and a more stable material called “Pronto-Plates” to demonstrate the resistance of water and oil. The fragility of paper plates deteriorate by the second and third generation prints, which can lead to some beautiful and abstract images. The “Pronto-plate” is stable, versatile, and can produce photographic-like images. This course is a great way to understand the basic idea of lithography! Join in and see what you create!

Reductive Woodblock Printing with Visiting Artist Casey Neumann #1072

Create a multi color relief print using just one woodblock! Reductive carving and printing involve printing a base color, carving out areas that are to remain this color, printing this reduced area (in a new color) over the initial impression, and so on. Precise registration techniques will also be covered. Editioning (pulling multiple prints of the same image) is an essential component of this process, and students will leave with a set of prints that can be distributed amongst friends, family, and possibly exhibition spaces. This accessible and innovative technique acts as a great introduction to the printmaking medium, and can push veteran printmakers into new and exciting territory as well! This workshop includes complimentary open studio time on Saturday, August 1 & 8 (1-5pm) & Sunday, August 2 (12-5pm).
