September 17-21 is the first annual Philly Maker Week, a citywide event focusing on local makers in the arts and tech fields. We are happy to host local printmaker Laura Murdoch for a meet & greet and demonstration of her craft, Friday September 19 from 5-8. Meet Laura and see how she creates her hand-carved printing blocks and transfers the inked images onto paper.
At the same time, our neighbors at Gush Gallery 3 doors down (5015 Baltimore) will also be hosting a demonstration for Maker Week – theirs is all about cyanotype, an early photographic process, once widely used for “blue prints”.
Complimentary light refreshments will be served at both events.
Check out the full listing of Maker Week events here. We hope that Maker Week becomes a popular tradition for many years to come.
