Airships Mail Printmaking Workshop with Kathryn Kain and Stacy Carter, Saturday June 13, 2015, 1-4 PM (NUMU MakerSpace Studio)
In conjunction with Giants in the Sky: The Rise and Fall of Airships, NUMU will host an Airships Mail Printmaking Workshop with exhibiting artist Stacy Carter and artist and master printmaker, Kathryn Kain.
Inspired by the airships mail program of the 1930s, the workshop will offer opportunities to make small transfer monotypes with a printing press. A selection of vintage images in the airship exhibit will be available as photocopy transfers to be printed on 100% cotton Rives BFK paper. This process uses traditional oil based inks with vegetable oil clean-up. The inks and papers are professional quality and result in beautiful unique prints. The workshop is open to all ages, children through adults. Wear a shirt or smock that can get dirty.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Cost for this workshop: Members and Students under 18: $15. All others: $20. Supplies and admission to NUMU are included in the workshop fee. To make your reservation, please contact the NUMU administrative offices at 408-354-2646
