Join us at BAM for our popular Family Workshop: Wrapping Paper Prints

In preparation for the holiday season, BAM is excited to introduce collagraph techniques for crafting unique relief prints that can be transformed into wrapping paper. We'll kick off with a hands-on demonstration of the cutting and inking process with example prints that highlight repeatable patterns, inspired by the grid-based process of Jennifer Bartlett’s House series.

Collagraph is suitable for young kids and families, who will be supplied with adhesive foam sheets, scissors, and some prepared shapes. Participants can create their own design or use a provided pattern. Then, they will engage in the inking process with brayers and block printing ink. Large sheets of craft paper will be provided for printing their patterns.

This workshop has been developed alongside the Positive Fragmentation exhibition of print artists, emphasizing the variety and sophistication of printmaking as an artistic medium worldwide.

All ages welcome.
