Come and experiment with various print processes to create a stack of richly surfaced papers to use in many ways. There are so many possibilities for printing patterned and textured papers —from letterpress with large wood letters to ink rolling techniques and tracings. It will be a messy, fun couple of days, and we'll see what we can create. All levels are welcome.
10/7-10/8 (weekend workshop) 9-4 pm Sat+Sun
Tuition: $245 + $30 studio fee
