silkscreen studio at NUA…

October 17, 2007 at 11:00 pm

The new washout sink, next to the regular sink: previously there were two slop sinks (like the right hand one) in a different part of the studio — over a wood floor. The screens didn’t fit into the sink, water went all over the floor, and all over whoever was using the nearby sink for photo washing. (Now the photo darkroom has its own sink — in the dark! The photographers are happy [see below…].) This part of the studio used to be the kitchen for a restaurant that was here previously, so we took advantage of the tile floor to make a rugged cleanup area.

We also no longer have to pick up water in yogurt containers and splash it over the screens: innovation!

Inside the silkscreen darkroom:

New screen coating table, built by Pete. Squeegees have their own shelf, on the left.

Storage shelves for ink and other supplies (no longer in the basement!)

The light table, which finally has a table of its own.

Darkened screen storage is below this table, behind a dark curtain. The rack behind it provides storage for other screens.

Last but not least: one of the happy photographers, mentor Erik Gould! (if he doesn’t look happy, it’s because his hat is falling off…)

  2. I think it’s fixed (they were visible from the main page, but not on the single post view… ie. what the rss readers get.) can you see them now?
