Ink Storm Holiday Events

1) Ink Storm and Anchor Archive at the Crafters’ Fair, Saturday & Sunday, December 3-4th, 11am-6pm
Come check out our table at the Halifax Crafters’ Fair! We'll have screen printed posters, cards, t-shirts, and patches for sale and lots of zines!

Happening at the Olympic Centre, 2304 Hunter Street. Free Admission!

2) Laing House Craft Fair, Saturday, December 3rd, 2-5pm, 1225 Barrington Street
Ink Storm has been doing special workshops with youth, including Laing House (www.lainghouse.org), a peer support organization for youth with mental illness where members can embrace their unique gifts and find their way in a caring and supportive environment.

The Laing House Annual Tree Trimming & Craft Fair (1225 Barrington Street) features house members and community partners selling their own craft goods – some of which were made at the Roberts Street Social Centre!

3) Ink Storm Holiday Card Making Workshop, Saturday, December 10th, 12:30-4:30pm
In this workshop you will learn to screen print your own design or image onto cards! You'll learn the steps of adapting an image for screen-printing, exposing a screen, mixing inks and printing multiple copies of an image.  We'll also go over all the basics, so you'll receive the same info (and more!) as you would at one of our intro workshops. The best part is that you'll be able to dive right in and produce your own finished product by the end of the workshop!

All materials, including inks and cards (15 per person) will be provided, but if you'd like to print on something special, please bring it with you! The cost of the workshop is $40-$60 (sliding scale, depending on what you are able to afford).

There is limited space for this workshop. Please email inkstorm@robertsstreet.org to register.
