Pochoir En Plein Air
Taught by Beth Sheehan
Pochoir, or stenciling, is an engaging method of printing without equipment, and can even be done on three-dimensional surfaces. Class will begin by discussing the best materials and techniques for creating simple, detailed, and multi-layered stencils. You will create your own images by cutting new stencils, using existing stencils, adapting everyday objects into stencils, and experimenting with various inking techniques. This workshop is great for all levels of experience.
