WHAT CAN WE MAKE? DROP-IN STUDIO
Saturdays through May 16 | 1-4pm

A significant element of Andy Warhol’s silkscreen works was his use of the same image over and over again. The process of reproducing the same image in mass quantities created subtle and sometimes wondrous variations through changes in print quality and accident. Andy Warhol employed a legion of assistants in his studio called “The Factory” to manufacture these works in massive quantities in order to explore the idea of change in what might be considered mundane. Telfair Museums would like to invite you to experiment with Andy Warhol’s exploration of pop culture, experience screen printing and take home your own serial creation.
