We are living in an age of a do-it-yourself lifestyle. DIY is taking over home decor and design as people across the country flock to websites like Pinterest and eHow for inspiration on how to learn to make their own pillowcases, picture frames, light fixtures and more. The only downside to DIY? Not all of us are visual learners. It doesn’t matter how descriptive a YouTube video is, some of us need to learn kinesthetically! Laura Matranga of Asbestos Press caters to these learners in her Behind the Silkscreen workshop, where she teaches students how to transfer their own designs through silkscreening. From noon to 4 p.m. on Sept. 27 and 28, students will learn how to stretch designs, burn images and ink the screen to create re-usable “stamps” and images. Tickets can be bought for $130 at Brownpapertickets.com (search “Behind the Silkscreen”), a price that includes materials and a seat in this unprecedented class, hosted at Verge Center for the Arts (625 S Street, Sacramento). Get your seats soon, tickets will sell fast!
