Print Your Own Merch Workshop | Poster Printing Workhshop
During the Print Your Own Merch Workshop, visitors to Canal Convergence were able to screen print their own Canal Convergence merchandise as well as posters. This free workshop provided hands-on screen printing experience.
Artist Eli Richards led these Workshops throughout the event. Eli Richard is an artist and designer working in the Phoenix metro area. His work focuses on playful and often imaginative imagery. Richard moved to Arizona from Northern California in 2013 and found immediate inspiration in the colors and landscape of the desert.
