About the event
Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, which was originally used to help fisherman record the size of their catch. The practice slowly evolved into a beautiful artform, which led to the inspiration for this class. Paint your design on a synthetic fish model and transfer your artwork onto muslin fabric. Your finished piece will be stamped and can be displayed in a frame, sewn into a decorative pillow, or shown off in one of many creative ways! All materials will be provided. Wear clothes you don't mind getting a little messy- this is a hands-on class.
Instructor: Kelly Hunt
