At SoWa’s Shepherd Print Studio
A Creative Relay live event
Saturday, July 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST
Shepherd Print Studio’s new location:
38 Wareham Street, Boston 02118
Screen printing is one of the most popular, versatile, and accessible methods of printmaking. Renowned printmaker and instructor, Liz Shepherd, will lead this all-day workshop with an intro to the tools and methods used in screen printing. We’ll then prep screens and print the art you provide. Bring whatever paper you’d like, garments or other fabric for printing. You will leave the session with prints of your own work as well as the completed screen to continue printing at home. Liz will also focus on techniques and materials that will allow you to take your newfound skills into the home studio.
This exclusive workshop is an all-day event and is strictly limited to the first 15 RSVPs. After registering, you’ll be given instructions on providing a design that will be ready for you when you arrive at the studio. We will have a 30-minute break for lunch- please bring a bagged lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided. Free parking is available.
Fee includes printing materials and a 20” x 24” aluminum silkscreen for you to take home. Fee does not include paper or fabric on which to print.
Registration is now closed. Thanks for your interest in our workshop!
