Printbank Mackay is getting ready for the annual Rock Paper Scissors Market!

Upcycled Art

Postcard sized art

  • Bring old prints to revamp into postcard size artworks.
    This will be a fun workshop where we re-cycle our art by adding layers and
    mediums to create new images. Make many or just a few.
    With your permission, these artworks can then be placed for sale at the RPS
    markets on September 16 to further raise funds for our group.

Envelope Making

  • Bring arty or colourful papers to fashion into envelopes to use to post our
    postcard prints to participants locally, nationally and internationally. These
    envelopes will add a lovely handmade touch to the Postcard Exchange.
  • Any extra handmade envelopes may then be offered for sale at the RPS markets

Press Use

  • Use of the press for printing your Postcard editions will be available.
    Remember though…they are due to be received via post by August 17!
