Makers’ Mill to give Printmaking Workshop


Printmaking Workshop

August 12th from 1 PM to 4 PM

At the Bullock Building on Main Street in Readsboro

In this hands-on workshop, we will experiment with monotype and drypoint printmaking, two forms that have a wide range of image-making possibilities. Visiting instructors from the Makers’ Mill in North Adams will bring a tabletop 12″ x 24″ Charles Brand press; ink, plates and paper will be provided. No previous printmaking experience necessary but all levels welcome!

There is no fee for this workshop, it is supported by the generosity of our donors.

Call 802 423-5600 or e-mail email hidden; JavaScript is required to reserve a seat as there are a very limited number of spaces available.
