Winthrop Avenue Family Historical Garden
Printmaking Workshop
Saturday, March 25, 2023
12:00 – 2:30pm
Join Red Line Service Institute and master printmaker, Angee Lennard and her team, for an afternoon of Gelli Plate Printing. YES - you will use a slab of Jell-O (with a few extra additions) as your canvas. Sound silly? This has been a legitimate printmaking method since the early 1900s, and has been used to print church newsletters, science fiction fanzines, and in WWII, prisoners of war were even able to use this process to print escape plans! Join us for a playful art experience in the garden.  Bring your family, meet your neighbors, enjoy refreshments, and make colorful, creative, and spontaneous prints.
Red Line Service Institute programs are open to all, with a special invitation to those with lived experience of homelessness.
