Best of all, you’ll get a chance to pull your own print of a poster designed by Jon for the event.
What is Screenprinting?
In this process, ink is applied directly onto a mesh screen and pushed through with a squeegee in order to produce a work of layered art or design on a piece of paper beneath the screen. All of the work created is original and this method of printmaking works perfectly for multiple editions.
