Screen Printing Wars -its back!

Stick it in your calenders!

June 29th is another wonderful Pedestrian Sunday here in Kensington Market and we will be holding the highly anticipated Screen Printing Wars!

The contestants this year feature our very own Jackie Lee battling against JP Spanbauer and Mounting Debt’s Susan Grace Van Beek Rogers. There will be Toronto band Terror Lake providing musical entertainment!

In a nutshell, Screen Printing Wars is a battle between teams of professional screen printers with a challenge to produce the best gig poster within a one hour time limit and with limited resources.

They only have one hour to pull something together. Will they have time to complete the job? Or will it all end in disaster? Find out on Pedestrian Sunday, June 29th, 205 Augusta Avenue. 1pm sharp!

Check out our Facebook event page for updates, found here.

 

Along side SCREEN PRINTING WARS, we’ll have an outdoor setup featuring screen printed home decor and accessories by Christina Obuch of Hatchet! www.hatchetmade.com
Join us Sunday, June 29th from 12pm to 5pm. (Screen Printing Wars 1pm to 3pm) — at Kid Icarus.
