Join us for this fun evening where you'll learn how to both finesse the printing technique and pronounce the word, Pochoir, which is French for “stenciling” and was a popular printing method from the late 19th century through the 1930s.


Using hand-cut stencils and stippled brush and sponge application, color is applied to each layer using countless techniques, from daubing to swiping, spraying, and spattering, making a recognizably beautiful print.


Today, many street artists such as Banksy and fine artists such as Mick Manning use the technique to create their work.


Registration closes June 7, 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.
