WORKSHOP: Printing Techniques II: Man-Made Materials

Tuesday, March 29, 2011
In this workshop, we’ll use sponges, foam, erasers, and other media to create blocks for printing. These can be smaller projects, suitable for printing on eggs (think Easter eggs!), cards, stationery, labels, envelopes, or for letterboxing, but bigger projects are fun, too, like the tissue paper at left.
This class will include samples and demonstrations, but you’re encouraged to experiment with a variety of materials. Some of us are looking forward to create a personal “chop” as a signature on cards or other handmade projects. 
While we will have some materials, books, and suggestions available, you are encouraged to:
- BRING paper, tissue, cardboard, blown eggs, or fabric to print on.
- BRING any stamp (ink) pads that you’d like to share.
- BRING a small cutting tool, like a paring, craft (X-acto), or swiss-army knife
- BRING printouts or ideas of particular things you'd like to make
