with Michelle Lee Lagerroos and Kirsten Olson
Thursday, July 8; 6–8pm CT
Print monotypes on fabric that celebrate summer! In this virtual workshop, learn about gel plate printing with plants, stencils, paintbrushes, and materials from around your home. Build skills, experiment, and create a set of prints to brighten your space, with instructors available to guide you through the process and answer questions.
Leave with the know-how to grow your gel plate printing practice on your own.
Michelle Lee Lagerroos (she/her) has been teaching printmaking workshops to adults at MCBA and MCAD since 2012. She has a background in publishing, works as a wrangler of two young children by day and a book designer/screen printer/printmaking instructor by night, and is the screen printer behind Angry Peanut Press. While her work has been shown locally at places such as the State Fair Fine Arts show, Altered Esthetics, and MCBA, she also loves simply making screen prints and giving them to people.

Kirsten has a background in publishing and is the screen printer behind Pizza Squirrel Studio, a space where she collaborates with kids to create wearable and shareable art.
