Art Walk weekend!

Our studio member Jenny is here with her amazing prints for sale! And inside the studio I’ll be doing letterpress demos all weekend. Drop by and say hello!

Open Streets Windsor 

Windsor’s first Open Streets event was wildly successful, and our street was packed with bicycles and pedestrians all morning long! Here are a few photos from the spray and stencil party we presented in partnership with the Arts Council Windsor Region.

Art in the Park

This weekend we took part in Events in the Manor, a fun free exhibit of Art in the Park. Here’s our set-up in the dining room of historic Willistead Manor, ready to demonstrate bookbinding for the public:

It’s more fun doing a demo by teaching somebody, so local artist Julie Bell came by to help out and learned a Japanese stab binding:

Up the Mesh Count

We’re pleased to be working with Windsor based artist and art educator Michelle Soullière on her new project Up the Mesh Count: Screenprinting For D.I.Y. Musicians, funded by Ontario Arts Council and the City of Windsor Arts, Culture, & Heritage Fund. We will be teaching local musicians how to screen print their own promotional materials and how to build their own screenprinting equipment, and producing a how-to zine on screenprinting to be distributed locally. Windsor is about to experience a D.I.Y. screenprinting revolution!

More information will be made available shortly, including where you can sign up for the workshop sessions (taking place in April, June, and September of 2016).

The project is also hiring! We need a studio technician to work with us throughout the project, and an illustrator to help with the zine. You can check out the contract postings here: Up the Mesh Count Studio Technician and Illustrator Posting
