A printathon is when many prints are produced in a short time. At a printathon the site chooses a theme, for example dinosaurs. The theme is interplayed with a relief printing project. This fun and clean project has accommodated up to 100 students in an hour and a half. Each student leaves with a hand pulled print that the student prints. A quilted wall hanging is made from the printing plates the students create. I take the plates to Riveroaks Studio and make the wall hanging. This is dried, quilted and delivered at a later date.
The Printathon alone can be a one or two hour program that is developed with student input but no wall hanging is produced. Working one to two hours with students costs $125 plus mile- age. The wall hanging costs $385 plus mileage, this includes time being with students. Long distances from Eufaula can be arranged.
