Mindful History: Decorative Arts Handprinted Image Transfer Cards


Join us for a Museum-based experience focusing on connecting participants with our exhibitions and more during the long months of winter.  Experiences include exploring art and history, yoga and meditation, decorative arts, and journaling at the Whaling Museum and NHA Historic Properties. 

Decorative Arts Handprinted Image Transfer Cards with Mary Emery Lacoursiere

Using simple printmaking techniques, make a set of unique cards.  We will use printed book pages and images that will be transferred to a printing plate and then printed onto cards.  This is a fun project using printed materials in a new way.  Please bring any images you have that we can incorporate into this project. We will also make envelopes to go with your cards out of decorative and book papers.  Each card will be unique and is the perfect vehicle to write and tell someone you are thinking of them.

Generously supported by The Tupancy-Harris Foundation
