    I’m interested. When would this course be offered? How much would it be?

    • ruthlane says:

      Hi Jane,

      I am still working on the last 3 modules including this one. It will probably be next spring (2016) when this one is offered. It will be $45 like all the other modules. It will be announced on this website when the class is being offered.


  2. I’m interested in this too.

    • ruthlane says:

      Thanks for letting me know. I haven’t started on this module yet. These take me quite a bit of work and time to get them finished. Longer than I expected, sorry.

    • No problem – I do a lot of thermofax printing on felt, so I’m interested in exploring new ideas around printing.

    • ruthlane says:

      You might be interested in the screen printing class. I have it almost ready so it will be in early 2016. It has a lot of experimental techniques that you might enjoy.

  3. I might just be still around in 2046, but I’m not sure I’ll be taking classes !

  4. Cheryl Dempsey says:

    Has this class been offered yet? If not I would be very interested in taking it.
