Collagraphs from Nature  Mel Kolstad

Have you ever wanted to learn how to make prints, but not sure where to start? Collagraphs from Nature are a perfect introduction to this medium! In this class, we will choose items from nature, right on the Whispering Woodlands grounds, and create our individual printing plates. Preparing the background with a monoprint, we will use our plates to make image impressions, creating a beautiful one-of-a-kind, unique print. No experience required. This is a fun and easy technique that will get you hooked on printing!  Bring yourself, a notebook, favorite writing tool, your enthusiasm, and maybe a friend!    Sat. Aug 18th, 1 - 4:30    $75/$10 materials
