Alice Waters works with Levi’s on print project

Berkeley based food goddess Alice Waters will tonight reveal the fruits of a creative collaboration with Levi’s Workshop, a community print shop run by the jeans maker which invites members of the public to experiment with letterpress, screenprinting and typesetting.

San Francisco non-profit Garden for the Environment (GFE) is also part of the project, as is Waters’ long-time collaborator Sylvan Brackett.

Waters’ contribution is an educational poster which will be distributed to Edible Schoolyard programs nationwide, while the GFE printed an “inspiring broadside” that reveals their simple recipe for “feeling good”. Both projects were printed onsite at the Levi’s Workshop.

The new work will be unveiled tonight at the Levi’s Workshop at 580 Valencia Street from 7-9 p.m.
