Join Pennsylvania printmaker and potter Mitch Lyons as he shares his unusual yet approachable printmaking process in this 2-day workshop.  Using clay as a printing surface and colored slip to create his images, Lyons has inspired workshop participants throughout the United States, Europe and Canada.  No press?  No problem.  Lyons’ elegantly simple system employs household utensils to transfer image to paper.  All materials are provided but he encourages students to bring additional items to create patterns and stencils.

Painters, printmakers and potters will find this workshop liberating and inspiring. If you’r not an artist, but love color and pattern, this workshop will reveal your hidden talent!

Note:  In summer 2019 the Delaware Art Museum will mount a retrospective exhibition of Mitch Lyons’ work to mark the 50th anniversary of his ground – breaking process.
