In this fun 3-hour class you will create a richly layered one-of-a-kind print in full colour using cut and torn paper assembled into a printing plate. Paper relief is an easy technique for producing monoprints mixing bold solids with complex atmospheric textures. If you enjoy making papercuts, this is a way that you can use that traditional method in printmaking!

All materials, including paper, are provided, and you will leave the class with at least one beautiful finished print. Depending on how you choose to prepare your plates you may have time to finish more than one print.
