Last fall we decided we would like to host a Steam Roller Print Making Workshop here in Northampton. We were the lucky recipients of a grant from the Northampton Cultural Council, and have teamed up with Zea May's, a local non-toxic print studio, and C3 for aid in pulling this all together. Our grant from the Northampton Cultural Council will cover the cost of ink, and cleaning supplies. Zea May's has graciously agreed to lend us brayers and technical support from studio members. C3 is aiding us in the acquisition of out door space to host the workshop which is scheduled for Saturday May 1st.
Because we have received so much generous support for this project, participants will only need to supply their own boards and paper.
We thought it would be a good idea to put the word out now so people can start generating ideas for this opportunity to create some massive prints.
Shortly we will be putting out an official call and providing more specific instructions. Please don't jump the gun and buy materials yet as we're going to need people to sign up and we will be requesting that everyone use the same boards!
This is a call to start generating ideas! More official instructions and information will follow soon so stay tuned!
