  • 75 US dollars
  • Bubbly Hall, 6065 Central College Road, New Albany, OH

Class Description

Emma Garcia Madrid will guide you in learning the basic principles of embossing to apply it on surfaces of thick paper or aluminum. In this case, we will be working with aluminum sheets. In this workshop you'll learn the techniques and create a beautiful embossed aluminum work of art. The material presents challenges in careful handling, as the edges of the tin sheet can be rough. That's why it is aimed at individuals over 16 years of age preferably.
