Join Sarah Matthews for 3 days of making and printing books!

I am a printmaker who makes books and I love mixing layers, patterns, and textures in my work. Join me for a fun and immersive 3 days of printing with ArtFoamies and Gelli Arts Press. We will walk through the many possibilities of printmaking, why I think layers are yummy, and my passion for hand-sewed books. Be ready to learn three bookbinding techniques (Pamphlet, Link, & Kettle) to showcase your printed pages. No experience is necessary. Fun is required. – Sarah Matthews

You will receive one of Sarah’s Art Foamie Sets and a stamp buddy as part of the class!
