  • Tips on how to tell a story in this medium
  • Materials to use & artist techniques
  • How to backlight

Pre-registration is required to give us an idea of numbers. Register through Zoom here.

If you are able to contribute, the suggested contribution is $15-$25. You can pay via PayPal ( or cheque (Anna Patton, 61 Ethan Hill, Brattleboro VT, 05301). Anna and Julie will arrange to split the proceeds. You can also check out Julie’s online store and Anna’s online store.
