Saturday 1st September 2018

Out of the Blueprint’s monthly creative meet up for young people aged 10 – 25 returns on Saturday 1st September! With comic-making workshops, zine club, exhibitions, superhero life drawing T-shirt printing and risograph demos, Print Jam is a celebration of all things print!

Come see behind the scenes as we prepare our next exhibition.  We are working with 8 young artists, who have each produced their own T-shirt design… which we will screenprint on the day, using our brand new GoccoPro machine!
Find out just how easy it is to print your own, and watch as the exhibition grows before your very eyes throughout the afternoon!
