Printmaking

Join artist Molly Gray and explore the magical world of mono-printing with this hands on workshop. Let go of your expectations and release your curiosity. Use tools, fingers, various textiles, and even leaves to create fun, one-of-a-kind works of art. Each participant will be making 2 variations to take home. Monoprinting is a type of printmaking in which no two prints are the same. There are various methods of monoprinting but for this activity, we will be focusing on the following: Ink, or paint is applied to the working plate and then tools and objects are used to remove or block areas of ink/paint to create the image to be printed. The challenge is that everything on your working plate will be reversed when printed, so any text needs to be written backwards which can be tricky! don't worry, we will have a letter cheat sheet!

This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
