Register here

Join us for a special screenprinting, art & activism workshop to support fundraising efforts for a family in Palestine. 100% of $ from registration will go to Zeyad Saqallah and his family of 4, to escape the genocide. Not only will you learn the basics of screenprinting, but instructor Emily Montagno is also going to be focusing the instruction on the history of protest prints how to use screenprinting for organizing. Everyone in the class will make a set of prints in solidarity with Palestine, either by bringing their own art or choosing from a set of open-source graphics by other artists. For inspiration, you can check out Just Seeds and their open-source options.

Learn how to create stencils, prep and process screens while gaining knowledge about tools, tips, and tricks for the photo emulsion process. You’ll have the chance to acquire best practices for setting up your print station, printing and registration while gaining practice with the medium. Our studio area uses only water-based silkscreen inks and is a primarily a non-toxic studio environment. Participants are also encouraged to bring files of artwork that they’d like to print (files should be flat, black and white images with no grayscale, letter or tabloid size).

Sliding scale based on IPRC Intro to Screenprinting workshop fees. Please select a level that is comfortable and within your means; option to donate additional funds when you register.
