SWEET FARM VIRTUAL FARM TOUR



Join us for a special Happy Hour as we support Sweet Farm, where rescued animals, living their best lives. Our tour guide will conduct a quick intro of the farm, and introduce you to the animals on your virtual tour. You can ask us questions or just hang out.

Sweet Farm is the first non-profit sanctuary in the world to address the global impacts of factory farming across animals, the plants and the planet. Our food web is incredibly complicated and it’s impossible to move forward without first acknowledging how these pieces are connected. By linking veganic agriculture, farm-animal rescue, education, and the technology that is revolutionizing food and agriculture production — Sweet Farm is redefining what it means to be a sanctuary.

Photo Emulsion Stencils in Minutes!
Speedball Demo Artist, Cristina Jacobs is back to give you the inside scoop on Speedball Speed Screens™.  Speedball Speed Screens are a new product offering that removes the time, cost, and energy of coating a screen for the photo emulsion method of Screen Printing!  Fast and easy, these pre-coated mesh sheets will have your customers printing in no time.  Christina will walk you through how fast and easy photo emulsion screen printing can be with these exciting new pre-coated mesh sheets.

Pictured with her husband Dennis, Christina Jacobs is an illustration/screen printing artis from in Madison Heights, MI. She creates pieces of art that not only tell a story, but take you on a journey through space and nature. Every piece displays their finely tuned ability to tap into each of her own desires to set off into the wild. Taking inspiration from their travels and home base near Detroit, every original illustration is one-of-a-kind right down to the uniquely blended inks. The narrative quality of their work has been sought out by like-minded storytellers, including musicians, filmmakers, comedians, and game designers.
