Our printing plates start as 10" X 10" pieces of matboard.  We will glue and emboss textured materials such as lace, sandpaper, thread, recycled papers, and more to these surfaces.  Each participant will create a supply of plates for multi-layered printmaking. We will experiment with staining some of our printing paper with acrylics before and after printing.  We'll roll ink onto our plates, decide how we will coax the elements of our plates into a cohesive design, and print!  Serendipity is embraced in this process.  Beginners welcome.  All inks and cleaning materials are non-toxic.
