Art for Action: Stencils and Screen Printing
Art is an integral tool in advocating for environmental, economic and social justice. Visual images help us communicate complex ideas, reach new and different audiences, reinforce our key messages and inspire people to join social change movements.
This workshop will give you hands-on experience designing and cutting stencils and using screens suitable for printing posters, placards, t-shirts and more. Bring your creative ideas to practice with, and be inspired by examples of what has worked well. Space will be limited to 30 participants, so register soon to avoid disappointment.
Time: Sunday, Oct 25, 1pm - 5pm
Location: Steelworker's Hall, 27 Cecil St. Toronto
Materials: You do not need to bring anything, but if you have a sharp blade and a cutting board it may come in handy. You can also bring your own snacks, water etc.
