Put It in Print: This Winter!

print

According to the Met Museum’s website, “Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a template design onto another surface, most often paper or fabric”. In short, the art of printmaking is an opportunity. Choose between surface materials — put patterns on cloth or frame your favorite saying. Carve and transfer the most delicate of details. Design psychedelic patterns. Printmaking also means you can make multiple copies of the same design. With so much versatility, you’re bound to curate your own, personal style.
