In this one-day workshop, Carolyn Letvin will teach the process of making and enhancing prints made from fish. Originating from Japan in the mid-1800s, Gyotaku prints are a form of nature printing, believed to have been used by fishermen to record their catches, subsequently becoming a popular art form of its own. Using both acrylic paint and water-based ink, students will create beautiful prints, then learn how to enhance the image to make them come alive on the paper.

All materials, including the fish, will be provided.
