Open Silkscreen Workshop
December 13 to december 23 2010, daily from 10am-6pm
// a collaboration of DZR & Mesh Print Club Rotterdam
For a period of ten days Mesh Print Club and De Zwarte Ruyter will fix up an pop-up silkscreen workshop at the Van der Takstraat in Rotterdam. Individuals as well as initiatives are invited to multiply their designs, work on some posters or print a stack of t-shirts while having a tête-à-tête throughout the process.
The workshop is open (and for free!) to anybody who is in the need of doing instead of complaining, anybody who wants to get loose on the smell of ink and anybody that wants to burn some wood during the dark days.
We have 400 kg of 400g thick ivory white paper/cardboard to print on. Ink is available for the material costs.
