Pochoir is a highly refined technique of making fine limited editions of stencil prints. The intrinsic value of pochoir is its simplicity and immediacy. Join teaching artist Dorothy Remington for this one-of-a-kind printmaking workshop.
In this 3-hour workshop, the class will begin with demonstrations and discuss the various tools, materials, and process. Then, we’ll dive right into the work and experiment with texture and form. This initial work will serve as a record of your introduction to the pochoir process. If time permits, we will end with critiques of each other’s work.
Level: Beginner, Ages 16+
Students should bring:
- A simple design for your stencil
- A pūpū & beverage to enjoy during your class
- A friend!
