So attendees will learn the skills necessary to print a quick paper card. The card will be made with 65 gm archive white. The envelope will also be the same. The size of the card is 4 x 6 inches. Everyone will be able to make at least one, but can make more.
The screen print station card will be a pre-set image due to time and prep limitations. The ink will be speedball red. If artists want to print their own shirts they can bring their own to use.
The linocut station you will print with a 4 x 6 size block you carve out with a speedball lino cutter. We will provide Daniel smith brand black relief print ink, red relief printmaking and if the student wants to print a different color we have several to choose from. If participants want to make letters they will be shown how to transfer them in reverse.
The mono print station will be set up to use Lyra water soluble pastels with the image prepared onto plexiglass. If participants want to make letters they will be taught how to transfer them in reverse.
