It’s so great to have our resident animator Elisa Chee back in the studio! Elisa was asked to lead a series of animation workshops on Haida Gwaii recently, so we thought it would be fitting for her to introduce ways for us to start thinking about ways to creatively inject motion into our printmaking process.
Elisa screened a wonderful selection of stop motion shorts to get us thinking about our Film Fest submission. The second installment of Elisa’s demo will run on April 15th, where we will be delving into generating stop motion clips ourselves.

Where New Media meets Slow Media.
Richmond Printmakers was initiated in January of 2012 by a core group of local artists who saw the potential to transform an under-utilized cultural space in Richmond, British Columbia into an inclusive, and creatively charged community hub.
We believe that exciting things can come about when traditional printing methods converge with contemporary digital technologies. We offer a membership-driven studio that promotes multidisciplinary learning, intercultural dialogue and the exchange of innovative ideas.
Become a member and make your mark on the project’s innaugural year!
Our studio operations are generously supported by the City of Richmond Arts & Culture Project Grant.
