Fall in love with screen-printing at the Studio School, it is so easy. It is even easier to do, especially now that a 6-yard print table has just been installed right smack dab in center of the studio! This size of table allows for special classes in printing of sheets and sheets of yummy wallpapers & fabric yardages.

Updated September Screen Printing Class schedule & details are online @ CandyCoated.org

"Printed Matters" @ the Comcast Center Concourse

Excitedly the Studio School prepares to stage an exhibition, "Printed Matters", a decorative intervention- of sorts, in the stainless steel concourse of the Comcast Center. Over 100 students have been bitten by the printing bug in this special little educational iniative and we are excited to share the love of printing with poster wallpaper featuring designers from the last 3 + years.

September 28- October 1 with a closing reception on Saturday, October 1, 12- 3pm

"Sugar Walls", a brand new wallpaper project is hot off the print table, debuting its utter sweetness and celebrating with a collection of fabrics for a fabulous "tableau vivant" installation at the Candy Coated Center. Models arranged in gorgeous piles, some even stapled directly to freshly papered walls, pose swathed in gowns in this elaborate "nature mort". Staged for one evening only.
