Soberman will share her various methods of transferring images to a variety of surfaces such as watercolor paper, fabric, metal, etc. and demonstrate how to alter the transfers with the addition of gold leaf, oil crayons, text, collage, and creative backgrounds. Soberman is a printmaker and educator with studios in Michigan and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Cost for one of the two class-demos is $30, all materials supplied. Class size is limited for each session. 

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, July 18, book artist Julie Friedman will teach paper cutting, which has its roots in European, Chinese, and Jewish folk art and is now used in the contemporary art world. In this one-day workshop, Friedman will demonstrate this art form and participants will create their own cut paper designs. No prior experience is needed. Cost for one of the two class-demos is $90, all materials supplied. Class size is limited.
