$ 185  

You can create fun and beautiful prints without expensive press or fancy art materials using everyday materials. We will focus on different print-making techniques, collagraph relief, mono-printing, & trace-monoprints, reduction prints, tetra-pack printing, and faux silk screening.
We will use wooden spoons, a pasta machine, and a tortilla press to make our prints. Besides printing beautiful printmakers' paper, we will print on and experiment with items that usually you don't print on, small boxes, paper bags, envelopes, filters, and fabric scraps to name a few.
No drawing or print-making experience is required.
