Students will learn how to have a creative printmaking experience without a press and sewing machine. Students will draw an image on the matrix and carve out the image. Then we will print on fabric, cut, collage, and glue/sew the image back together. The objective of this course is to teach different techniques that do not require you to leave your home. Maximum participants 15.
