Rust Printing

05/16/2020 01:00 PM - 04:00 PM ET


Rust printing is a unique way of mark making that utilizes steel and iron to create images on paper and cloth. Using found objects for mark making brings additional meaning to compositions. Learn how the natural rust color of iron oxide can be altered with natural plant colorants and how the prints themselves can be further altered and used for book making, quilting, and creating mixed-media art. Take away the know-how to set up a mobile, all-weather rust printing station at home. 

*Some steel and iron objects will be provided but students are encouraged to bring their own as well. We will be working only on paper in this class if you would like to bring fabric, feel free. Kids 14 and up are welcome, if accompanied by an adult.
