Hello Everyone!

I want to apologize for a TIME CHANGE in our upcoming Crafting class.
The ACTUAL time will be 4:30-7pm
I hope you all can still make it, as do I hope this time change may work well for folks who had other time conflicts!

SO here is the info!

Brickelltown Crafternoons Presents:
Print Your Pet pooch, parrot or puss

Mary Kenny will be teaching an introductory print making class in the
Brickelltown Courtyard.

TUESDAY AUGUST 18th at 4:30-7pm

10382 donner pass rd
Truckee, CA 96161
The cost is $18 bucks and includes ALMOST everything you need!

In this afternoon class you will learn how to create a simple linocut.
Linocut transforms the simplest of images into graphic form, producing bold,
dramatic prints similar in appearance to woodcuts. You'll learn to plan an image, carve an easy cut plate,
work in positive and negative and print with multiple colors.
linocut prints make fabulous greeting cards, and can also be printed on fabric.
No experience necessary!
This is a wonderful way to begin an exploration of print making.

Please bring:
a picture of you pet or a face you want to print
water to drink
any additional papers, cards or cloth you want to print on.
