On Sunday, my husband, David and I joined several others at the very cool Peach Berserk on Queen St. W. in Toronto for a fun silk screening workshop that was also a fundraising event for Pragmora.
Pragmora is an international peace organisation that is both a policy think tank and a grassroots activist group. Pragmora Executive Director, Dr. Glenys Babcock spoke about her recent trip to Africa and the excellent work Pragmora has been doing in the DR Congo.
Peach Berserk owner Kingi Carpenter showed us how to silk screen a t-shirt. There was also a great selection of delicious treats for participants to snack on.
I've always wanted to try silk screening, it was a fun activity and we each silk screened a t-shirt with our choice of design. We just had to bring a print out of the design we wanted and a t-shirt to print on and Kingi supplied the rest.
I choose a peace sign design, which I thought was apropos considering the work Pragmora does. David chose a print of the character Sheldon from TB's Big Bang Theory.
