Print Gocco Demonstration

Print Gocco Demonstration by Amy Rice
Placement Gallery
509 1st Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN
May 12, Saturday, 1-3 pm

The Print Gocco is a Japanese toy, a mechanism for making small screen prints. They are extremely common in Japan, with one in three Japanese households owning a machine. Production of Print Gocco Machines ended in 2005 and it is estimated that there is only two more years left of Gocco supplies at current use (screens, special light bulbs and specific ink).

Come and observe local artist, Amy Rice, as she demonstrates the Print Gocco Machine. You'll learn how the Print Gocco works, see samples, and find out where to buy Gocco Printers and supplies. Amy will be making a print based on one of her most popular paintings, “Flo Finds a Cupcake” and chocolate vegan cupcakes will be served.
