Great news! Transformazium
is partnering with the Braddock Carnegie Library
and Dipcraft Manufacturing
to implement a neighborhood screen printing shop. The shop will be housed in the library. Necessary equipment including a vacuum table and a wash-out sink have been generously made available by Mike Tobias and Dipcraft. Transformazium is ready to put together these amazing resources and make a new one!
The shop will meet the need for increased communication between local organizations and residents by facilitating the production of posters, bulletins, and other informational material. It will provide an affordable means for producing printed T-shirts. It will create opportunities for entrepreurship. It will be an active place for the exploration of the creative process. We are really excited about it, but we need help from you, our friends and neighbors, to make the studio a truly vibrant space. We need your input and insights, your energy and participation. And we need some other things too. We made a list.
We also need money! So that we can buy ink and emulsion and fund programming. Please consider making a donation if you are able.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have supplies you would like to donate. Or mail supplies to us at P.O. box 621 Braddock Ave. Braddock, PA 15104. We are also interested in your input. We are interested in your ideas and questions. Please be in touch!
