Backyard Kimchi Workshop

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Monday, August 19, 2013 - 18:30 - 19:30
We be making some sour goodness for our bellies, korean style.

My name is Ryan, and if you want to make some kimchi with me, come to my backyard. You bring a jar, I'll acquire the ingredients. We can look at my pretty backyard garden and discuss permaculture or fermentation or both while the veggies soften. Then we'll pack the jars with all the goodness, yum yum yum, and in a few days to a week, we'll have kimchi.

Sound good?

Just come roll by my house on the evening of August 19th, and if all goes well, we'll make us enough kimchi to nourish a horse.

peace and love,

ryan

Facilitator's experience: 
I have fermented beer, mead, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, ginger beer, and sourdough bread, which were all great, and then some tempeh which was pretty bad :)

Beginning Screenprinting with Living Proof: Workshop for People of Color

Participants are invited to join members of the Living Proof Print Collective for a two-day workshop covering the fundamentals of screenprinting exclusively for people of color. We will emphasize Do-It-Yourself (DIY) methods so folks can take their screenprinting skills out into their communities! Because of its DIY nature and capacity to efficiently create multiple copies of an image, screenprinting has historically been an art medium used to widely spread messages. We’re hosting this workshop specifically for people of color as a way to create a space to consider our positions as art-makers in our communities. The first day, Saturday, August 3 from 1-4 PM we will focus on designing images to print and exposing screens. The next day, Sunday, August 4, 1-4pm we will be printing and sharing prints! By the end of the workshop, participants will make their image into a one-color print that they can put on paper or fabric to share and post widely and wildly. We will cover print shop basics, introduce materials and alternative inking and printing processes. We are definitely open to participant input on class structure, though we will be cramming a ton into a short period of time so it would be great to hear from you with any questions or hopes before the actual workshop begins. We will be sending out some prep materials before the workshop and we encourage you to check these out to be more prepared for class when it starts. IMPORTANT: Due to space limitations, we can only allow 6 participants for this 2-day workshop. Please sign up only if you can attend both days, in addition to self-identifying as a person of color and/or indigenous. We are planning to offer these again in the future so just let us know if you're interested in future workshops and we'll keep you in the loop.
