Participants are invited to join local collective Living Proof for a two day screen-printing workshop in mid-late November.   We will cover how to prepare and print a 2 color screen-print for paper 11x17 inches or smaller.  Ideal for art prints, flyers, promo materials, and general 2-color experience.  Participants will gain first hand experience working with image editing software, preparing and burning screens, registration, printing, paper handling, and clean-up while working in our DIY studio.  All materials (imaging software, screens, emulsion, inks, paper) covered.  

Participants will make 13 prints to keep and 7 prints that will be traded with the shop and other participants, but are welcome to bring or purchase additional paper if they'd like additional prints.  Participants should come with prepared drawings/files (saved to e-mail) that are appropriate for 2-color (layer) paper printing 11x17 in. or smaller.  The first days class will be a full morning and afternoon and include time for preparing images at the Library, Boxed Lunch or Lunch at the Global Market, a studio tour, and screen prep.  Second Day will be printing only.  As a bonus, participants who finish the class and enjoy using the Print space are eligible to attend Open Shops at the Living Proof studio which is a semi-regular open studio time for our past exco participants.

Beginning Screenprinting with Living Proof: Workshop for People of Color

Participants are invited to join members of the Living Proof Print Collective for a two-day workshop covering the fundamentals of screenprinting exclusively for people of color. We will emphasize Do-It-Yourself (DIY) methods so folks can take their screenprinting skills out into their communities! Because of its DIY nature and capacity to efficiently create multiple copies of an image, screenprinting has historically been an art medium used to widely spread messages. We’re hosting this workshop specifically for people of color as a way to create a space to consider our positions as art-makers in our communities.

The first day, Saturday, November 10th 1-4pm we will focus on designing images to print and exposing screens. The next day, Sunday, November 11th 1-4pm we will be printing and sharing prints! By the end of the workshop, participants will make their image into a one-color print that they can put on paper or fabric to share and post widely and wildly. We will cover print shop basics, introduce materials and alternative inking and printing processes.

We are definitely open to participant input on class structure, though we will be cramming a ton into a short period of time so it would be great to hear from you with any questions or hopes before the actual workshop begins. We will be sending out some prep materials before the workshop and we encourage you to check these out to be more prepared for class when it starts.

IMPORTANT: Due to space limitations, we can only allow 6 participants for this 2-day workshop. Please sign up only if you can attend both days, in addition to self-identifying as a person of color and/or indigenous. We are planning to offer these again in the future so just let us know if you're interested in future workshops and we'll keep you in the loop.
