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 Kathryn Kain, artist and master printmaker. 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. Supplies are included in the $15.00 workshop fee. Wear a shirt or smock to that can get dirty.
The location of this workshop is 4 Tait Avenue, Los Gatos 95030. Parking is limited.
