BYO Print has called the Fishtown / Kensington Neighborhood it’s home for over 4 years now. While the neighborhood had already begun establishing itself as an Arts Corridor, we have seen some extraordinary strides recently with new businesses, restaurants, studios and art spaces popping up all over the place. The creative ingenuity is inspiring. Whether you live here, work here, or enjoy hanging out here in Fishtown, you should definitely come and “Meet The Makers” this First Friday.

The Meet Your Maker Project, created by The Art Dept, will feature makers and creative businesses in the Fishtown / Kensington area. It is a multi-faceted project that includes a photography exhibition (Opening Friday, December 6th at The Art Dept), interviews with the local “creators”, and a catalog that will act as a guide to all the wonderful things happening in the creative community of Fishtown.

How Lovely! BYO Print is so lucky to be a part of this awesome community, and lucky to have been photographed and interviewed for the project.

Here are some Links so you can learn more!

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 byostudio.philly@gmail.com. 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.)
