Screen Printed Cards

with Michelle Lee Lagerroos and Kirsten Olson
Saturday, February 12; 1–4pm CT

Get familiar with MCBA’s screen printing studio and print your own unique, two-color design on a set of cards! In this in-person workshop, learn the basics of screen printing using hand-drawn artwork, cut-paper stencils, and darkroom techniques. Instruction will cover design, screen exposure, ink, and printing on paper. Cards may celebrate holidays (valentines), spring, or anything else you think up! Bring your sketches and ideas to the workshop. Each participant will come away with ten cards approximately 4.25 x 5.5 inches in size.

All skill levels welcome
