Recycled Printing with Tetra-Pak® NEW! In-Store Class March 12
Recycled Printing with Tetra-Pak® NEW! In-Store Class
Sunday, March 12, 1-4pm
Instructor: Theresa Haberkorn
Limit: 6 students
We’re amazed at some of the unusual materials that can be recycled these days to create art. Who knew that the carton with rice milk or chicken broth in it could also be used as a “plate” for printing?! Join local printmaking artist Theresa Haberkorn to learn this fun printing technique with Tetra Pak® cartons. It’s similar to traditional drypoint except that it’s chemical free, the materials are readily accessible, and they’re inexpensive. (Drypoint is a type of intaglio printing in which lines are scratched directly into a metal plate.) The Tetra Pak® technique readily lends itself to experimentation and is suited to making a series of limited prints.
Theresa provides all the materials you’ll need in class: prepared Tetra Pak® plates; printing paper; a non-toxic oil-based ink that cleans up with water; brayers; and drawing needles for scratching a design. She also brings in a small printing press to use in class, but it’s easy to print at home without one.
Watch Theresa’s demonstration, then enjoy experimenting with different ways to use the Tetra Pak® plates. Layer colors, combine multiple plates to create one print, or use a single plate and add texture and scratches in stages to change the design. Theresa demonstrates additional techniques to inspire you. The class is a great introduction to printmaking for novices, but it’s also an easy and fun technique for experienced printmakers to add to their toolbox.

In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class.
