Curiosity Shop


Join regional artist Ouida Touchon for a single-day entry-level class exploring the printmaking process of chine collé. Chine collé is a unique printmaking technique in which paper, often in precut shapes and of a different color or texture, is adhered to the overall piece.


Using a printmaking press, paste, scissors, and scraps of beautiful paper combined with printed vintage birds and botanicals, you will learn to create beautiful compositions in this class. Each participant will make 6 one-of-a-kind prints with a paper size of approximately 8×10 inches.
