Please choose one hands-on Workshop to attend:
Risograph Poster Printing, Led by Tuan Phan
Risograph printing is a fast and low-cost printing technique that is perfect for signal boosting your ideas. In this workshop, you will learn how Risograph printing works, before writing and workshopping personal or political slogans. You will then translate those ideas into two-color political posters that you can share with friends or like-minded comrades.
Embroidered Patches, Led by Steven Smith
As an antidote to a fast-paced, digital design process, this workshop will slow your mind and engage a more contemplative method of making. You will sketch designs for an embroidered patch based on your identity or values. Then you will learn a handful of basic embroidery stitches that will help you bring that patch to life.
Cyanotype Flag Making, Led by Alexandra Robinson
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that yields monochromatic, cyan-blue prints. You will use cyanotype to create a fabric flag that explores symbolism and represents a belief or value that is important to you. Each participant will leave the workshop with their own fabric flag.
AR Filters for Instagram/Snapchat, Led by Alex Lang and Jay Esteves
Augmented Reality filters are easy to design without knowing how to code. In this workshop, you will learn the basic workflow of Spark AR to create filters that are personal, political and weird. You will learn how to incorporate readymade assets to customize your filter and how to share your finished work on Instagram and Snapchat. **Please note that if you select this workshop, you will need to bring a laptop to the conference**
Collage Zine, Led by Sarah Acevedo and Madisson Staires
Zines are a cheap and versatile format to share your ideas, art and creativity. In this workshop, you will combine collage, illustration and personal written reflection to create a zine that represents your personal beliefs and is Xerox-ready for mass distribution.
