Lino & Screen Workshops At Kid Icarus!

This holiday season we are pleased to announce that we are bringing back our lino carving workshop! In this class we will be teaching the basics of soft linoleum carving, providing workshop goers with the tools necessary to transform their drawings into hand-carved prints.

Prior lino cutting experience is not required and beginners are welcome!

We are also thrilled to be rolling out a new winter roster of screen printing workshops. The perfect gift for any creative looking to take on a new craft!

Whether you or a loved one want to buff up your own personal skill set, or perhaps are looking to build up your screen printing knowledge from scratch, we are here to help.

In our workshop you will learn the step by step process of how to screen print. From how to prepare screens, to how you can set up for screen printing at home – we will teach you all you need to know to become a successful screen printer. Workshop goers will leave with a small run of prints and a brain full of screen printing knowledge.

If you would like to register for a lino cutting or screen printing class feel free to get in touch with us at our Kensington Market shop. You can find more information at www.kidicarus.ca. Call us at 416-977-723 or sign up online to register for a class!

A Handmade hot spot!

We just received the winter 2014 issue of Toronto’s design guide, ‘Designlines’ and we’re on page 109 as part of a DIY/hands-on workshop gift guide for the city!
Kid Icarus is in good company, alongside Paintlounge and The Shop.

This beginner class-taught by the pros behind KI’s much-loved line of stationery – covers everything you need to know to start your own Hallmark line ($150, materials included).
