- CAN I WATCH LATER? Yes! Sign-up and we'll email you a recording
Join Amy, pick up your recycling, and create something unexpected! Tetrapak enables the artist to cut, score, peel and print, creating unique artworks from recycling waste. Using a juice, milk, soup or custard carton, you can play with the process of drypoint - a fine art intaglio print technique - using low cost, immediate materials. The idea is to scratch a drawing into the silver-side of the tetrapak, apply ink, clean the ink so that it just stays in the areas you have scratched and then print. (You will need to work within the confines of your paper size, so the tetrapak will have to be cut smaller than your design).
Put on your old clothes/ apron/ gloves, find a clean surface to work on, or place newspaper on a surface to protect it.
Please review the materials list for the workshop below:

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
