Citra Solv Prints with Susan Gantz
Saturday, June 9, 2018
1:00 – 4:00 pm
Supplies Provided! Are you ready for some messy — but fragrant* — fun? Explore manipulation of National Geographic magazines with the all-natural solvent Citra Solv. You will make a stash papers, learning a variety of ways to create designs with stencils, masks, stamps, plastic wrap and more. Your supply fee includes your own bottle of Citra Solv, a National Geographic magazine and completed papers created by Susan. While the supplies you need will be provided, please bring a favorite stencil/mask or two as well as gloves and an apron (or wear old clothing that can withstand an accidental spill of dissolved ink). If you have them, please bring your own National Geographic magazines, as well as fashion magazines, glossy junk mailers and/or any other inked paper you would like to test.
* Note: Citra Solv has a very strong (although not unpleasant) odor; while students will be working in a ventilated area, those who are very sensitive to odors might not find this class suitable.
