TETRA PAK PRINTS

Instructor: Christopher Shore
February 23, 2021, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST
$15 Members and Non-members

In this live ZOOM webinar we will explore the basic principles of using tetra pak as a matrix for creating intaglio prints. Similar to drypoint or silicone intaglio, this simple direct method will allow you to create elegant and beautiful prints with little prep and few materials. The class will cover basic prep, plate creation and printing techniques. Learn about this super accessible technique with a material you probably have in your pantry.
