Minutes from September 2008 Meeting

Minutes of September 10, 2008

We are interested in your proposals for possible venues for upcoming exhibitions. If you would like to help out on the exhibition committee, please reply.

The president of the Bryn Mawr College Art Club contacted member Molly Crowley, because they are looking for interested artists to teach workshops for the Art Club. Bryn Mawr College currently does not offer studio art classes, so the students have organized this club to fill that gap. If you are interested please email Molly at with your workshop proposal(s) and time/materials needed, and your contact info. I'll send these to the Art Club president.

A tip from Katie Haegle of
Did you know that the Whole Foods on South Street is hosting craft fairs on the last Friday of every month? They started them in June and it's *free* to have a table, you just have to bring your own table or blanket. (A table is better because there's not a lot of room on the sidewalk there.) The person who runs it is Brett Mapp and the store's number is 215.733.9788.

Email Molly if you are interested in a discount printing option:

Woodcut Printmaking Workshop
November 2, 2008
Martha Knox's Home in Germantown – I am happy to provide vegan-friendly refreshments throughout the time that we work so we don't have to feel rushed. I'm thinking soup in the crock pot, bread, and finger food. And of course coffee and tea.

A stimulating and pleasant few hours making woodcut relief prints. Beginners can learn the basic process, and those familiar with the process can try more complex or experimental techniques such as using color, doing reduction prints, using both sides of the block, adding collage or sewing, etc. Ideally everyone makes enough prints to do a print exchange at the end. I will let participants know beforehand the size of the blocks so that if people want to come with a prepared drawing and/or pre-cut paper, they can.

# of People:
4-6 is ideal, but could go as high as 8.

Materials and Budget:
-Water-based block printing ink $30.00
-Paper (suggest people bring their own)
-Brayers (I have some, maybe others can bring extra?)
-Wooden spoons (suggest that people bring their own)
-Carving tools (I have lots, maybe others can bring extra?)
-Wood blocks (I will provide)
