About this Workshop:

Join us for a class with Pyramid Atlantic exhibiting artist Gail Shaw-Clemons where she’ll show you how to create stunning and rich printmaking techniques known as “rainbow rolls.”  You’ll learn how to blend two colors of block printing ink on the same brayer to create a tri-colored print and how to build up layers in creating dimensional prints. 

Level: Intermediate – some printmaking experience recommended, but not required.

Registration closes June 15, 2023. Materials fees are included with registration to cover the materials supplied in class. A small list of optional items will also be provided to students to gather/bring to class.
