Have you imagined printing on non-paper surfaces? One of the most exciting aspects of inkjet printing has been the development of a wide variety of media that can be used in printers. This workshop will provide an overview of alternative commercial media such as pretreated fabrics, Japanese rice paper, and aluminum, and how to print images on them using an inkjet printer. Materials fee will be higher depending on the size of images printed – ink is charged at $5 per square foot. Please bring your checkbook to class. Enrollment limited to 6 students.
