Two spaces left for July Printmaking without a Press at SHY RABBIT

There are only two spaces currently remaining for the July session of introductory Printmaking without a Press I at SHY RABBIT.

No previous experience is required, and classes are kept small for personalized attention.

Participants will be introduced to the basics of this proprietary printmaking technique, and will learn how to replicate traditional printmaking processes easily and without the use of harmful chemicals or expensive printmaking presses.

To see some of the results of this unique printmaking process, stop by to see Paper & Clay 3, on display at SHY RABBIT through Aug. 8.
