Interactive Screen Printing– September 1st Ocrober 12-3pm, Cafe.

Join Sue on her creative journey in the Ocean Studios printmaking workshop for a 'Live Making Insights' session on September 17th. Sue will share and give you insight into her process and production. You'll get behind-the-scenes access with an opportunity to ask questions as she creates prints for her exhibition on display from September 20th September – October 2nd in the Cafe.

This exhibition will explore and experiment with boundaries in hybrid printmaking processes underpinned by themes; movement, body, scale and performance. Sue's practice centers around screen-printing, photo collage and collaborative making.

On September 24th, you can get hands-on and try screen-printing using pre-prepared stencils from Sue's work. You'll also get to take away a print of your own with a small cost to cover materials. Everyone is welcome to join in, whether it's your first time or you're a seasoned pro. It's an opportunity to play and connect over the process as part ofPrint in Action.
