On June 17, 2005, at a community center in Watsonville, California where there are science classes for children called Camp Sea Lab. El Colectivo Caldo de Cultivo Urbano from Mexico City were special guests for a workshop on printmaking for the community. The workshop assisted approximately 40 children and some mothers also participated in the activities, and I can’t forget Bradley who helped us, but he was also interested in the workshop and he made a print with the children. The result was very good, many people returned home with a father’s day gift, and some fingers were scratched by the tools, Bradley with a print of indymedia and we were exhausted and happy because we have never worked with such a large group.
