Hi
Seattle

Local time: 12.25pm
Weather: 22c / 72f

Time flies! #TDKtuesday is back June 6th—Still rolling with hands-on design, we’re shifting from our computer screens to silk screens. I’ll walk us through a DIY screen printing workshop that you can use to make small-scale prints at home. Come meet me and special guests Alanna MacGowan and Stephen Bader, designers of The Hello Poster Show (facebook.com/hellopostershow/) and we’ll talk about the impact of their social design event that took place during last month’s Capitol Hill Artwalk at Melrose Market Studios (bit.ly/fbhpswtp). To *shamelessly* plug UW’s Design Show that opens the next day, this event is at the School of Art. Stop by the Jacob Lawrence Gallery June 7th-17th to see the show put on UW’s Division of Design graduates, including work by yours truly. Catch the grad student’s show too at the Henry Art Gallery, opening the 3rd through 25th. C ya there, Seattle!
