Hot off the press:  new screen-printed studio-themed coasters.


Ila’s Class

Today, the Kamloops Printmakers Studio was visited by Ila’s screen printing class from Thompson Rivers University. That’s Ila on the right. The students have spent the term printing pages for a class book. Today, they are at the shop doing a book binding workshop to sew up their pages. Each student will receive a book showcasing the class work.
