Sunset River Marketplace art gallery will offer a one-night class on block printing with instructor Janette Montgomery on Thursday, June 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is part of the eclectic gallery’s Creative After Hours series, designed to encourage non-artists explore their creativity in a fun and informal environment.
The series, which has presented jewelry-making, folk art, painting seascapes, floral still lifes and other subjects, has become popular with groups such as co-workers, bridal parties, friends and local organizations. The friendly atmosphere also makes it comfortable for individuals seeking some artistic inspiration.
According to Montgomery, who has already taught one popular block printing Creative After Hours class, “We’ll be creating a unique palm tree block print. I’ll show everyone how to cut, ink and press the individual prints using a variety of papers. All skill levels (or lack thereof) are welcome!”
As with all the Creative After Hours events, Sunset River Marketplace will supply materials, snacks and instruction.
Participants should bring their own wine or other beverage.
Fee for the class is $35 per person. Space is limited, so reservations are required. Call the gallery at 910-575-5999. For additional information, visit the website at www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com. Sunset River Marketplace is located at 10283 Beach Dr. SW in Calabash, N.C. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
