Sunday, January 8, 11am–3pm ET and Sunday, January 15, 11am–2pm ET via Zoom
Looking to reimagine old print editions, print “rejects,” or prints on fabric? Want to clean out that flat file and turn old pieces into brand new transformations? Take collage to a new level by working with cradled boards, iron-on adhesives, printed fabric and prints on paper and more. We’ll explore using the Japanese hole punch and various cutting techniques using an x-acto knife to bring new life to past work.
Level: Intermediate – Experience with mixed media, as well as fundamental design and drawing skills are recommended but not required.
Registration extended to January 2, 2023. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.
Please Note: The online session 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. Access to the recording(s) will be made available to all participants for a limited time.
