About this Workshop:

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.  Any and all levels of experience are welcome. 

Level: All levels welcome – no experience necessary

Registration closes March 16, 2022  to allow time for students to gather/purchase any needed supplies for class. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, such as  ink, gloves, newsprint, tarlatan, solvents, and Tetra-Pak containers.
