Create one-of-a-kind postcards using gelatin slabs as your printing surface. Experiment in a no-mistakes atmosphere, working with hand-cut stencils and found objects such as lace, string, and leaves to create colorful patterns and texture. Then make a simple book structure to store your prints. Have fun with this loose, surprising approach to printmaking. All materials will be provided.

Discover the fun of printing in color using a spontaneous approach. Carve a few background patterns to print in different colors and combinations, and then print a strong final image on top to bring it all together. Learn the basics of design, carving, printing, and paper selection. All tools and materials will be provided for the first class, but you may need to bring your own papers for subsequent classes.

This workshop teaches you to create fun and funky jewelry from decorative and recycled papers, such as magazines, newspapers, and wallpaper. Simply cut paper into strips and roll it into beads or experiment with some simple techniques for origami jewelry. Using yarn, thread, beads, and vintage buttons, students assemble their creations into necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Tools and materials for simple beading provided. If you want to get fancy, bring your own findings, accent beads, and wire.

Creativity + everyday materials + photocopier = ZINE! A zine is like a magazine, but its content is only limited by your imagination. We’ll experiment with several exercises – some silly, some serious – merging art and writing to jog the mind and fill the pages. We’ll discuss how to generate content, design pages, and produce and distribute zines. You’ll leave with a copy of a collaborative zine and ideas for starting your next one!
