What exactly is printmaking? We invite you to our print studio to experience this exciting art form and TRY IT!
Explore one technique from four methods of printmaking in this very special, hands-on, one day workshop! Join Kelly in this unique introduction to monotype, relief, intaglio, and stencil printing. You will walk away with a basic understanding of each method our Sonoma studio supports within the family of printmaking, and explore how you can join our Open Studio!
Monotype – Create a single print on a flat matrix using a variety of colors and playful textures.
Relief – Carve, ink and rub out a print using a mini linoleum square and a linocut tool.
Intaglio – Draw, scratch and ink into a plastic surface to roll out a creative print using a small press.
Stencil – Pull a screen and learn to cut, transfer and push ink through a flat stencil to make a print impression.
All materials are provided. There will be a one-hour lunch break – please bring a bag lunch.
