Screenprint colorful political posters with old-fashioned ink on paper!
No experience necessary!
Print all the posters you can in an hour! You’ll be set up with a
already-prepared screen and a squeegee. Choose your color of paper and ink,
and you’re ready to print. Optionally bring a friend to help hang your
prints to dry, and you can take turns with the squeegee. When done, take
your stack of posters home and hang them up around your neighborhood!
This week’s poster design comes in a 1-color version (1 hour, $15) and a
2-color version (2 hours, $25). Images here:
The votes are in and MPC is now Polka Press!
It won 10 to 6 over Heavy Little Press.
Polka Press, still carries all the ideals of MPC and it’s mission remains the same: to promote a vital and local printmaking culture through affordable education and collaboration of participants of all skill levels.
To help communicate this we will be adding a sort of tagline after Polka Press, e.g. Polka Press: A Printmaking Community. or Polka Press: Gemütlicheit & Printmaking. That sort of thing!
In the meantime you can expect to see a transition to the new name over the next couple of days (blogs, emails, facebook etc.).
Do not be alarmed! We’re still the same friendly faces of the former MPC.
Thank you so much for your time and cooperation during this change!
