Fourth Fridays printmaking demos at GSA

Last Friday evening I went up to the Guelph School of Art to visit with Pam and Lydia while they did their letter press and pronto plate demonstrations for Fourth Fridays. There was a good group of interested people, printing personal messages on festive coasters with the baby letter press and creating their own pronto plate cards on the baby etching press. Here are a few shots of the action and some of the things we made.
The demonstrations were an introduction to two workshops coming up soon. Pam Lobb will be teaching letter press on Sunday, December 8th and Lydia Nieuwenkamp will be teaching pronto plate on Sunday, December 15th. These are going to be popular workshops, so make sure you register soon. You can find all the information here.
