Join us during the East side art stumble while Lindsy Davis demos printing with plants! Bring a clipping of your favorite plant friend to immortalize on paper.
Lindsy will also be showing for the first time the woodblock prints done while she was the artist-in-residence in October of 2016 at the National Homesteading Monument of America in Beatrice, Nebraska, through the National Parks Service. While there she made woodblock prints of the pioneers that tamed the landscape while also making paper from the prarie grass that makes up the landscape, printing the landscape on the landscape.
Prints will be available for purchase.
Begin your new year with a new book! The crossed structure is a beautiful, contemporary, soft cover binding in which the spine and covers are woven together to form a flexible, yet sturdy book. Opportunities abound for you to explore adaptations within this structure, including your own stitched, woven, and collaged elements.
Registration ends Jan 18h, and class size is limited to sign up now!
