Update 2/8/11: The presentation was magnificent. It was a very informative session explaining how to do silk screening at home. Charles had come prepared with a number of two color prints, that only had the first color applied. All the participants had a chance to try pull a print of the second color, and had their very own collaborative work of art to bring home. Thanks so much Charles, it was great!
