Very Interesting Weather We’re Having

Evergreen Open Door Studio Tour coming up on September 17th & 18th – you can check out all these studios and their captive artists!

About the Printmaking Workshop. We still have several seats available. This is a great opportunity for both beginners and those who have had some experience with Solarplate.

At Open Press, instructor Mark Lunning will teach us to use Solarplate, a simple approach and safer alternative to traditional etching and relief printing. The first class begins on Tuesday September 6th from 1-5 pm, second class is September 13th 1-5 pm, third class is September 20th 1-5 pm, and the last class is September 27th from 1-5 pm. This workshop is open to both beginners and those who have experience with solarplates but want to learn more advanced techniques. Bring a piece of art you have and like and make an original print!

All material will be provided; everyone will have two 4” x 5” and one 8” x 10” solarplates and three 22” x 30” sheets of 100% cotton printing paper; cost is $300.00. The maximum number of participants is 8, so please act quickly to secure a spot. If you are interested please contact Vanessa Martin at martin.vanessa655@gmail.com to sign up.
