Katrina Herman, the artist behind Oakland-based print shop All Gold, is in the final days of her Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to open a community space to house workshops, printing, and exhibitions for Bay Area artists. Currently, Katrina is running the small business out of a garage in West Oakland, but is hoping that her campaign will not only help to offset the cost of renting a larger place where hosting screen printing and other workshops will be feasible, but will also help to purchase necessary equipment and supplies for the future space like heat lamps, ink, paper, and emulsion. All Gold is planning to host one free screen printing workshop a month, shows for local artists, and donation-based classes run by various guests for crafts like sewing, baking, and making speciality cocktails. The end goal is to create a comfortable, community-based resource hub where all types of artists are welcome.

You may have seen All Gold set up at local shows around town, as Katrina has done live screen printing for bands like Sunbeam Rd. and Growwler, setting up her equipment near the merch table and making fresh, hot off the press band tees for purchase. She's also done work for Couches and the awesome new quarterly record club It's Just Great, printing banners, t-shirts, and LP covers.

Check out more info and all of her great campaign perks (like private screen printing lessons, molasses dipped cookies, and a year's worth of mail) on her page here. The campaign ends March 27. And, as always, All Gold is open for custom orders, live printing, and more. Keep up with them at @allgoldsf or at allgoldsf.com.
