In this workshop, we will experiment with gel plate monoprinting. Gel plates are a great way to enjoy printmaking without the intimidation of specialty tools or equipment. We will use the autumn leaves to create original prints that celebrate the season. Let your creativity run!

This class must meet minimum enrollment by October 20 in order to run. Register today!
