Tetra-Pak is an easy-to-find household material frequently used in cartons and containers for products like chicken broth, coconut water, milk, and juice. In this workshop, we will learn how to recycle this material into a printmaking plate using accessible and budget-conscious materials. The plates can be engraved much like an intaglio or collagraph plate. Students will produce at least one plate and a small edition of prints to take home.
Level: All levels welcome – no previous printmaking experience necessary.
Registration closes February 2, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.
