Hello, my name is Michael and my partner in work and life is Bianca. Together we are known as Kid Icarus, a screen print studio and retail shop located in Kensington Market, Toronto, Canada. In the storefront, we strive to find the best in contemporary handcraft, focusing on paper products, local talent, and unique design.
The studio space is open concept so the public can see how the process works, and watch as prints are being made. Our love of the craft and appreciation of others who create goes beyond our walls. We love the community we've built around us and push others to create their very best, but we have simply run out of space to grow our concept.
- Move into a new space and retail shop where we can continue to expand and foster the arts and crafts community
- Heighten awareness of traditional print methods and the visual artists who work with these antiquated and time honoured traditions.
- Foster local and regional handcraft especially via workshops and talks
- Provide space for other professional screen printers to access our equipment and create.
