May 12 2017 – ⇧⌘3: Screen Printing Workshop 2.0

“All graffiti is low-level dissent, but stencils have an extra history. They’ve been used to start revolutions and to stop wars.” -Banksy

Feminist MakerSpace

Join the Feminist MakerSpace on May 12 for a screen printing workshop. Jillian Round will use your images to make stencils and lead us through a workshop in which we screenprint on papers. Unlike most Feminist MakerSpace events, this one does require some supplies and an RSVP.

May 12, 2017

12pm – 2pm in the Visual Art Studio, aka the Art Barn

To participate, you will need to

  • RSVP by May 10 (use the form below)
  • Submit a high-contrast image ASAP, no later than May 10 (see guidelines, and use the form below)
  • Wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. We will work with chemicals, paint, and a high pressure water sprayer!
  • The School of ATEC is sponsoring the supplies for the workshop. Optional: bring paper for screen printing. The screens will be 10×12
  • See below for some help in image selection
