Relief printmaking is one of the simplest types of printmaking, in which material is carved or taken away from around the protruding design that is to be printed so that only the design appears.”

Lorriane Imwold will teach you how to make your own prints along side with a live painting presentation by Jerome Chester. There will also be a special happy hour for attendees and live music TBA.
