Class Description

Don’t have a silk screen set-up or exposure unit at home? Here is one of the many ways you can still incorporate printmaking in your life without the need for expensive set ups or printing presses. Learn about stencils in this one session course on Alternative “Low-Tech” Printmaking, and create products such as customized stationery/notebooks, patches, t-shirts, and tote bags. Students will also learn photo manipulation techniques to create stencil designs from photographs, as well as their own drawings.
