To paraphrase Life of Brian, “there’s one place I didn’t look” in my guide to Thursday night in Nashville: Platetone Printmaking. They open their studio to the public every third Thursday of the month and offer free workshops. This Thursday’s workshop is on Stencil Monotypes, and it sounds fun:
This October, Megan Little, a Platetone print and bookmaker and friend of Turnip Green, teaches you to get flat in action and take advantage of Turnip Green’s textured wallpaper samples to discover the beauty of stencil monotypes. Use our amazing press to create your own intricate, layered designs, or experiment with handcut designs by our talented Platetone members!
Megan’s work is a joyful and reflective exploration of the world around her, and she loves to play with new print materials and reclaim cast-off objects. With a BA in Visual Art from Houghton College in New York, Megan has called three countries home, bringing a global taste to her printmaking talents.
The night is free as always, and we’re proud to showcase great snacks from our generous sponsors. Light refreshments, good company, and Turnip Green Creative Reuse next door; what more could you ask for?
The class is from 6 to 9 p.m. While there, check out Turnip Green’s stock of wonderful name-your-price merchandise. They just got a huge shipment of hardware items like screws, fasteners, bearings, and gears. You know, basically Tony heaven.
