Hand Printing with Natural and Found Objects Workshop
For this printmaking class, you will use plants, fruits, vegetables, feathers, and other found objects to create unique imagery utilizing (water-based) ink and paint. During this class, there will be an explanation of materials, demonstration of this process, discussion of color / composition, and ample time to make prints. No experience is necessary and all materials will be provided.
Optional but encouraged supplies to bring (we will have some of these available but more is always best):
* disposable nitrile/rubber gloves
* old hand towel/rag
* additional plants (fresh and relatively flat are best)
You will have 2 hours to make as many prints as you desire. We figure you'll be able to complete about 10 prints (or more) during this time frame. Of course, you'll also have the know how to continue making prints on your own.
