Simply print off an image from your ink-jet printer, use Copycat™ to transfer the image, and then we will teach you how to age your piece by layering it with Amy Howard’s Antique Waxes, Cracked Patina, & Dust of Ages. This will help you to achieve the antique, vintage look of old photos and artwork.   Believe it or not, this project can be done on wood, fabric, even glass!  

Cost of class – $115

Block Printing Class

Linoleum printing is a form of relief printing, one of the easiest and most direct of all printmaking methods. Linocuts can be simplistic and graphic, or as intricately detailed as you want. It’s a subtractive process – meaning you cut away, or subtract, the areas you do not want to print.

Create your own pattern or stamp that you can use over and over again. You can print on everything from paper to fabrics to metals. Join us to explore and exciting new way to add creativity into your world.
