We need a New Member!

See how this fancy POST postcard is split into quadrants? That's because we are currently a foursome! We have room for one more printer in the shop, who would like the following perks:

Keys to the building, for unlimited 24/hr access.
A locker, for storing supplies, and non-flat stuff.
2 Flat file drawers, for storing flat things.
A nice place to hang out on First Friday, when our building is abound with activity!
Access to a 15" by 30" steel etching press.
A nice place to work and make prints.
With adequate knowledge, access to some of the machine tools in the building.

If you check through the blog's archives, you'll see that we provide some of the basics, and you supply your own materials for your project, series, experimenting, etc.

We have: blankets, acids, blotter papers, solvents, gloves, tarlatan, newsprint for intaglio
big spaces to carve, barens, and the above for relief printing
(coming soon) exposure unit and washout for silkscreen

We charge a very minimal monthly rent for the above plus access to our shared google calendar, which members use to reserve time on the etching press.

Cheers! And we hope to meet some new printers soon!

Cyanotype workshop at The Random Tea Room, July 16, 2017

Sunday July 16th 11AM

Revel in the glory of the powerful rays of the sun with printmakers from BYO Print, and make traditional-style cyanotype prints, also known as sun prints. 

We provide all the materials you'll need to make a unique print to take home. You can also BYO objects to use that are opaque and flattish. Feathers, pressed flowers, stencils are great for this. 

Spend an afternoon in the backyard of the tea room with an Iced Tea and good company. RSVP via email to Workshop cost is $10 per person, and you will make one print. (Because of the cost of supplies for this workshop, you can make additional prints for an additional fee.)
