Local printmakers Claudia Borfiga, Bay Hallowell, Meagan Stirling, and Sara Woodburn are conducting a series of printmaking workshops with sexual assault survivors and loved ones in partnership with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Each printmaker brings years of experience in printmaking, teaching, and community engagement to the project. The workshops will provide an opportunity for support, creative expression, and empowerment. The workshops will culminate with a public exhibition of screen-printed banners and community dialogues on sexual assault.
