Print/Organize/Protest
A one day, FREE, hands-on experience at CPC.
Saturday, January 14th, 1-3 PM

Just BRING SOMETHING TO PRINT ON: 
paper, t-shirts, fabric, etc.
AND - a snack to share.

CPC has ALWAYS been a SAFE SPACE. For all people, ages, gender, religions, race, and background. We invite you to gather in our shop to celebrate DIVERSITY and COMMUNITY. Historically, printmaking has been a democratic medium; a way to get the word out, a celebration of free speech. CPC, in solidarity with other print shops around the country, is opening its doors in the name of INCLUSION. So many people are feeling frustrated, disappointed and afraid, and they are no longer able to find political catharsis in signing petitions or donating money. I think we are entering a moment where passive participation no longer soothes, and people are ready to come together, if just to voice their fears and unify through the act of making.

CPC artists have created a variety of images that can be screen printed on whatever you bring to print on. Choose whatever you want to print, and we'll show you how to do it! We recommend smoother fabrics and paper surfaces for best results, but hey, we're open to whatever. 

We'll provide the inks and screens and other stuff, just keep in mind we're not able to switch out ink colors once we've started. We're looking forward to having you join us for this gathering!
