BIO: Soul & Ink: A Live Screen Printing Experience is the brainchild of husband and wife design team, Frankie and Sherry Meneses. Passionate about design for social change, they wanted to find an avenue to step away from the computer and into the community. They were inspired to create a DIY mobile screen printing set-up after seeing how thrilled their friends were at screen printing parties they hosted at home. It was an instant hit. They have activated events all over the District, and most recently Germany, New York, and North Carolina.
