  • Wood Lithography Demo Moved to November 7th

    Wood Lithography Demo Moved to November 7th

    I am now giving the wood lithography demo at the George Mason University Printmakers Guild meeting on Saturday, November 7 from 12:30- 3:30pm.

    I have been trying out this process that combines some of my favorite qualities of woodcuts and lithography, so I am going to show attendees the process- from drawing and carving, to etching, to printing, and more tips for working with this experimental print medium.

    If you're a printmaker living in Northern Virginia/DC region, consider joining the guild- it's open not just to George Mason students, staff, and faculty, but to community members (like me!) as well! Visit their website here: GMU Printmakers Blog
