On Friday, October 14 from 1-4 pm join the artists Shealagh Pope, Madeleine Rousseau, and Beth Shepherd, hosted by master printer, Larry Thompson from the Book Arts Lab, for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of hand-pulled prints. The event is the culmination of the ‘Migration in Print’ exhibition at the Books Arts Lab on display throughout Culture Days. In this session participants will view videos produced by each artist, revealing the processes used to create a piece in the exhibition, and have an opportunity to examine their materials and ask questions. This will be followed by a hands-on session that will allow participants to try their hand at printmaking in a variety of novel forms.
