Virtual Workshop!


Learn to create beautiful, unique prints in minutes without a press, using using Akua water-based inks and Gelatin plates. Students will learn to utilize stencils and natural and found objects to make textures and "masks," while experimenting with a variety of papers. The final, unique hand-printed pieces are suitable as finished prints or as a jumping off point for mixed media and collage projects.


Level: Beginner


Registration closes May 28, 2020 to allow time for students to purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.



PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. Class recordings will also be made available to other registrants who may want to review the session. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
