Mixed Media Printmaking Taster Course - Etching and Screen Print Taster Course
Try the mixed-media printmaking technique! This course will introduce participants to the etching, drypoint, and screen printing techniques; participants will learn and experience creating their own intaglio and silkscreen prints.

At the end of this workshop, participants will complete an edition of 5 A4 etching with two color screen prints to take home.
