Reimagine Everything print workshop

Each Thursday, 5-9pm, the Metabolic Studio is hosting its print workshop, Reimagine Everything. Our studio practice is open for those seeking a space to visualize what comes next in this urgent climate. At the Reimagine Everything print workshop, you will find everything you need to research, design, and silkscreen your reimaginings.

There is already a substantial library of silkscreens that can be used by anyone coming to print. The silkscreen library has screens donated by local, national and international artists and activists, including Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, the Women’s Center for Creative Work, Kathy Prendergast, Dan Knight, Judith Baca, Lauren Bon, Jessica Fleischmann, Nicholas Hummingbird, Nik Gerolomino, Rebeca Mendez, Susanna Negrete, Evie Garf, Sharon Ryan, Lenny Steinberg, Iva Georguieva, Sarah McCabe, Maya Bon, Teri Klas, Niky Roehreke, Randy Burdick, Nik Gelormino, Jon Kinney, Linda Vallejo, Rochelle Fabb, Vania Almeida, Wil Sterner, Red Rotkopf, Cindy Bautista, Tristan Duke, Jen Curtis and the collection is growing.

The Metabolic Studio supplies space, skill and good company for this ongoing event, and your donation of extra clothing to add to the workshop inventory, and healthy food for sharing, is gratefully received. Come join us for the Reimagine Everything print workshop at Metabolic Studio every Thursday 5-9pm until further notice.

The Metabolic Studio printmaking projects began with the Veterans Print Studio at the WLA Veterans Hospital during "Strawberry Flag", 2009-2010. Both of these studios have been hosted by Richard Nielsen, Metabolic Optics Division artist, with assistance from the Metabolic Studio team.
