Printmaking workshop takes art students across borders

Visual arts students who participated in a cross-border printmaking workshop Friday used the theme of international dialogue as a starting point for their works, says instructor Julie Sando. She took members of her class “Studio Practice and Ideas: Image” to Signal-Return, a recently-opened letterpress shop in Detroit’s Eastern Market, for the shop’s first international workshop.

Owner Ryan Schirmang said Friday’s snow closed many of his neighbouring shops, but didn’t deter the UWindsor group.
