Rachel Speck of Tropical Goth Prints is coming to Northampton from Mexico City! Join us on Saturday July 1st to learn about her creative process and her screenprinted tarot cards, shop her full lineup of creative offerings, and learn to carve your own prints. From 2-3pm will be an artist meet & greet and opportunity to buy any of her screen prints (on cards, shirts, bags, potholders and more) open to the public; and from 3:30-6pm will be the workshop (which these tickets are for). In this workshop, Rachel will share about her concept of a Tropical Goth Tarot Deck with details on the inspiration and interpretation of a few cards. Then, Devon and Tasha will lead the group in learning to carve your own linoleum block and printing them together. Come for the Gulf Coast magic, stay for the creative practice time! No experience with printing, linocut carving, or tarot necessary <3
