A Virtual Workshop!


Looking to reimagine old print editions, print "rejects," or prints on fabric?  Want to clean out that flat file and turn old pieces into brand new transformations?  Take collage to a new level by working with cradled boards, iron-on adhesives, printed fabric and prints on paper and more. We'll explore using the Japanese hole punch and various cutting techniques using an X-acto knife to bring new life to past work.


Level: Intermediate - Experience with mixed media, as well as fundamental design and drawing skill is recommended but not required.


Registration closes January 22, 2021 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. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
