A four-part Folly Cove Designer-inspired printmaking workshop at the Cape Ann Museum
Every Thursday, October 27, 2016 — November 17, 2016
10:00 a.m. — 12:30 p.m.
Enjoy four days of close instruction from artists Mary Rhinelander and Victoria Petway as they delve into the world of block printing. A shared affinity for the Folly Cove Designers brought Mary and Victoria together and they will guide the workshop using Virginia Lee Burton Demetrios’ three rules: Do it! Don’t copy! Don’t give up!
This customized course offers adult participants a special opportunity to create his/her own artwork surrounded by the inspirational work of the Folly Cove Designers. Participants will sketch, carve linoleum blocks and print an original work to take home. They will leave this course with a greater understanding of the history and work of the Folly Cove Designers, with a new creative outlet and with twenty original greeting cards just in time for the holiday season. All levels of experience are welcome and materials will be provided (participants will be required to bring enthusiasm and some elbow grease!).
The workshop will meet on Thursdays, October 27 through November 17.
