Meeting and Workshop

Hello Guild Members,

On Saturday, October 8th we’ll be meeting at 12:30pm, an hour later than previously discussed, in order to accommodate the 1pm workshop led by the lovely Brooke Inman.

Brooke is a Richmond-based artist who currently teaches printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond. She will be conducting a 3-hour Screen Monoprinting Workshop. It will be really fun workshop and excellent opportunity for us to produce prints together and get to know each other a little bit more. Brooke will be bringing tons of resources and work samples for you to see. Don’t miss the chance to talk to an experienced printmaker! I look forward to seeing you all there!

Please see flyer for more details and e-mail me to confirm attendance.brooke
