Thanks Temple folks for the awesome write up!

David Aponte, one of our awesome member printers, was quick and witty enough to bring two Temple Journalism students into our lives this fall! They visited the shop, asked some questions, and met with all our printers. They were eager to learn about printmaking and how art is helping the neighborhood. What we showed them has finally made it into this awesome article all about BYO Print!

Here are some highlights....but check out the full article. There's a nice video too!

I'm showing them what ferric acid looks's what etches copper plates! I keep a spent bottle around for when I need to etch brass too. (Note my re-use of a friend's old Starbucks apron, been using this since college!)
Lisa Imperiale lifts one of Lauren's exposed silkscreens to show how old images leave a ghost stain on the silk. Thanks to Norman Fetter & Honeymoon Music for those screens!
Three State proofs of an etching being printed in the shop, including the print I pulled for the students (far right). I'll put one aside for you, Lauren M!

Once again, thanks for featuring us! We're Leos, so we love the attention!

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.)

Our members will work collaboratively over three days to produce a series of work on paper featuring imagery drawn at the river banks, printed on site on our mobile Conrad Etching Press. Find us along the river and learn more about printmaking, our members,' and our studio.

From May 13-15, 2016 join AiO along the Schuylkill River banks - from the historic Fairmount Water Works to Bartram's Garden - where a jury-selected group of artists will create new works of art outside, in a creative process open to everyone.
