Explore a variety of professional printmaking techniques with exhibiting artist Amber Kaiser of Burning Bones Press.
Each 6-week session will focus on a particular technique such as block printing, monotype, drypoint, collagraph, and screen printing. Students may continue in a favorite style or method during subsequent sessions after taking the introductory session.
Experience the excitement of rolling the press cylinder over your inked plate or block and pulling out your first original print! Learn how to correctly sign and number editions, or create a series of prints.
All levels welcome; no experience necessary. All techniques can be done without any special proficiency in drawing.
