Little Chair Printing opened in 2010 in the basement of Hope Rovelto’s house, and has since grown to include an Olde Kensington community-based screenprint and education shop, and a mobile bicycle screenprinting outfit. Little Chair makes screenprinting as accessible as possible to folks who have something to say to the world, and empowers them with the tools to make/say it.
Spiral Q teamed up with Little Chair this Summer for roving art making engagements in the neighborhood - Hope riding to each site on her one-of-a-kind bicycle screen printing unit from her headquarters near Berks and Howard. In each of these events dozens of neighbors young and old have pulled their first print, some participants barely tall enough to reach the squeegee. At the end of the project, Little Chair will have printed over 300 placemats with community members at 6 outdoor neighborhood sites.
