This past Saturday low tech/high joy collaborative ran a screen printing workshop at http://www.ehomesmn.org/seabury/ Episcopal Homes-Seabury and it was a great success!  We managed to print every piece of paper and ended up with 463 seed packets cut and folded with the generous help of the residents.  We loved the willingness of the Seabury residents to give screen printing a try.  Since we had just learned how to print in volume the previous Tuesday from the skilled and helpful women at Minnesota Center for Books Arts http://www.mnbookarts.org we remain novices.  So it was great fun to muddle through the process with such an enthusiastic group.  Many thanks to everyone who showed up, printed, chatted, cut, folded, measured and joined in making the Sunflower Revolution happen.  We loved every minute of it!
