Join our resident print master Joshua Norton on March 19th from 6 - 7:30PM for an introduction to all of the Co-Op’s Screenprinting equipment, go through the process of creating your image, burning your screen, to printing your final product, and have the chance to pull a print.
This workshop is great for beginners to the craft and those who may need to grease some rusty printing gears.
The class is FREE for Union Co-Op Members; $10 for the public.
Current Fellow April Faith-Slaker writes about her studio practice that marries numeric data, computer software, and her cello.
"I began this fellowship back in October, with my numbers, statistics software, and cello in tow. I’ve spent the past few months thinking about how we can forge connections and conversations between social policy and the arts, between facts and expression - and wondering why these worlds are often so separate in the first place."
