Learn how to make a relief print using inexpensive and readily available materials in a simple process you can do at home. Plaster as a relief medium allows for very gestural and intuitive work for adults as well as children old enough to safely handle a sharp tool.
Registration closes March 13, 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.
