No need to register, just drop in!
Printmaking Workshop with Marshall Heaton
Local artist Marshall Heaton is excited to bring printmaking to the LAC’s new Printmaking Studio. Through a series of four classes these two workshops will allow artists to explore the art of relief printmaking (from its most basic stamping applications to specific focuses on woodblock and lino printing), and intaglio printmaking (from the etching to engraving process). Artists will hand-pull their own work and utilize an etching press, and learn about the art of multiples, editions, transfers, mono-printing and various post printing additive processes. Presentation of completed works; matting, framing, binding, photographing, exhibiting, and gifting will also be presented based on participant interest.
Fee: $100 + Materials Fee: $50 (incl. all supplies and paper) = $150
Time: Please inquire for upcoming workshops
Questions + Register: Call Marshall at 519-322-0548 or visit the LAC
