Crafter’s Screen Printing Workshop with Roy Liang - Registration now open!


Two-day Intensive Screen Printing Workshop for Crafters

w/Roy Liang

Saturday December 6 & Sunday December 7, 11-4 each day

$125 (+ MPA membership*)

 

Are you a creative person making amazing merchandise, but don't know how to package it? Do you want to save on costs by printing your own packaging, or improve your current promotional design? If so, this workshop is for you! Using basic screenprinting techniques, we will focus on the basics of printing on plain brown paper bags, tags and labels. Experiment printing on cloth ribbon, leather, and more. Please come with a sample of your merchandise and a desire to cooperate and share ideas with your fellow classmates. This is a beginner class and basic knowledge of Photoshop is beneficial. Basic supplies (ink, paper, paper bags) supplied but students are encouraged to bring their own supplies as well (leather scraps, ribbon, etc.).   

 

Roy Liang has been crafting for a very long time but things turned around for him for the better after he took a screening printing course at Martha Street in 2006. He participates in local craft sales.

Steal This Poster

Short Portage


In 2012 Martha Street Studio launched the Steal this Poster project. Artist members are encouraged to come in and produce a small screen edition that will be put up on poster kiosks in the Exchange District. Artists are given complete freedom to produce any image they see fit. The only caveat is that the Martha Street Studio logo has to be integrated into the print in some fashion. The public is free to take them if they want and are encouraged via Face book and our own promtional emails to photograph the poster in it's new home and send the image to MSS. To date we have seen more than 25 editions produced and distributed. 


NEW HOURS: Open First three Saturdays in December!


Martha Street will be open from 12-5 on the first three Saturdays of December.

We are extending our hours to provide the general public greater access to our exhibitions. We will also be 'open for business' with the Print Shop and Print Sales on these days.
