Silkscreening class with Kingi Carpenter
May 14, 2013 - 10 am-6 pm
In one totally hands-on and information filled day, students learned everything about screenprinting. Kingi Carpenter and her company, Peach Berserk, have taught over 6000 people the art and technique of screen printing.
Kingi took an image provided by participants and created a screen from her studio in Toronto. Participants then transfered that image onto any porous surface: paper, fabric, recycled clothing, tote bags, t-shirts. The screen was theirs to take home with instruction on how to do print in their own studio, along with her book and dvd. You can visit Kingi’s website at www.peachberserk.com.
