Instructor: Sam Dahl
Skill Level: ALL
Curious about printmaking? Try one or all of these printmaking sampler events. Each workshop will start with an instructor demonstration. Then students will have the chance to try the printmaking process. Explore subtractive and additive inking techniques by rolling, painting, or removing ink from Plexiglas in the Monotype Sampler. Learn to carve and print from linoleum plates in the Linocut Relief Sampler. Or experiment with a non-toxic alternative to the traditional Intaglio printmaking by transferring drawings or photographs to solar plates in the Solar Plate Intaglio Sampler. You'll leave with a good understanding of the printmaking process and a desire to do more. Most materials included, but request a list of things to bring.
