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 – no experience necessary
