An Online Workshop!

Thursday, August 18, 7pm-9pm ET via Zoom

About this Workshop:

Join us for this fun evening where you’ll learn how to both finesse the printing technique and pronounce the word, Pochoir, which is French for “stenciling” and was a popular printing method from the late 19th century through the 1930s.

Using hand-cut stencils and stippled brush and sponge application, color is applied to each layer using countless techniques, from daubing to swiping, spraying, and spattering, making a recognizably beautiful print.

Today, many street artists such as Banksy and fine artists such as Mick Manning use the technique to create their work.

Level: All levels welcome!

Registration extended to August 12, 2022. With your registration you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” on downloading and using the Zoom video app.
