Workshop: Serigraphy, Screen Printing Basics with Kim Brett
Suitability: beginner level or those looking for a refresher
Block printing has been used for centuries as a method for embellishing fabric. Repeating a printed design on yardage creates a decorative pattern.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to carve a pattern or image to create a small printing block. That block will then be used to embellish fabric samples. All materials and tools will be supplied.
The workshop is on Thursday, February 28 from 10 am - 4 pm (bring a lunch!) at 1-25 Hart Drive, Barrie. There are limited spots (5) - so act fact! Cost is $85 and materials are $15. Participants will take home an original handmade print.

Exhibition: Object Orientation by Kim Brett
Suitability: Beginner level or those looking for a refresher
Serigraphy, also known as “screen” printing, uses a mesh to transfer ink onto a substrate such as paper. The image is defined by applying an impermeable blockout that leaves open areas of the screen. A “squeegee” pulls ink across these open areas allowing the ink to transfer through to the paper.
Collective member Kim Brett will lead participants through the process of printing with a screen onto archival paper. This one-day introductory workshop will teach the basics of how to create a screen image with drawing fluid, crayon and block-out tape, and prepare it for use on a vacuum printing table. Participants will produce an original serigraph print that can be brought home at the end of the day. All materials supplied, including drawing materials, acrylic printing ink, paper and other essential tools. Please bring an image idea no larger than 8” x 10” that may be hand drawn or brushed onto the screens.
The workshop is on Sunday, March 10 from 10 am - 4 pm (bring a lunch!) at 1-25 Hart Drive, Barrie. There are limited spots (5) - so act fact! Cost is $80 and materials are $15. Participants will take home an original handmade print.

Reception Thursday, March 28 from 7 pm to 9 pm.
PRNT member, Kim Brett, will be exhibiting some of her recent works produced in the studio over the past year. She has created a vivid and reflective examination of the colourful mass-produced and disposable objects that surround, and inevitably define us through the performativity of their repeated use.
