Register for last printmaking class in 2010 at SHY RABBIT

This is your last chance to be introduced to Printmaking without a Press at SHY RABBIT in 2010. No previous experience required.

Take advantage of this amazing opportunity before this very popular class fills!

This introductory printmaking course will take place on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 4 and 5, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

There are only a few spaces remaining so don’t delay. Class size is kept small for personalized attention and these spaces won’t last long.

Participants will learn the basics of this unique printmaking technique, and will learn how it can replicate traditional printmaking processes without the use of harmful chemicals or expensive printmaking presses.

Students are provided with a very affordable materials list, and are encouraged to advance at their own pace by practicing this remarkable printmaking technique in the privacy of their own home.

One student made the following comments after attending a recent session of introductory printmaking:

“I want to thank you for an absolutely wonderful weekend! It was so much fun, and I learned more about the process than I ever thought that I would. I feel totally rejuvenated.

“It has been several years since I’ve done anything truly creative, so I was a bit intimidated at first. Michael’s comfortable teaching style and personalized encouragement has really inspired me to continue forward with more though.”

“I couldn’t be happier with the results, and am really excited to delve into this process! I feel that it has huge possibilities for the kind of work that I’d like to do.”
