DIY Screenprinting with Living Proof Print Collective
This two day workshop will serve as a basic introduction to the the medium of screenprinting with a focus on do-it-yourself methods. Day 1 we will introduce the process and prepare screens for printing and day 2 we will print. Each participant will have the opportunity to create and print their own 1-color print on paper or fabric. We believe printmaking can be a medium for anyone to speak their mind and tell their stories and we want to help you do this!
We will cover basic design, emulsion, drawing directly on the screen, equipment basics, shop setup, the printing process, inks, what you can print on, and more.
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 constraints we are limiting sign up to only 5 people. PLEASE only sign up if you can attend both days of the workshop.
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.
Class will meet Sunday, November 13th, 1-4pm and Monday, November 14th, 7-10pm.

Facilitators (two for each class) are all independent artists who incorporate screenprinting into their artistic practice. We believe in screenprinting as a powerful personal and political tool. We founded Living Proof Print Collective (http://wehavelivingproof.wordpress.com/) to create a space where we could create our own artwork and help provide access and resources to various community members and groups. Over the last year we have put together a screenprinting shop with capacity to teach workshops in and out of shop, and provide space for multiple practicing artists, all on a very tight budget.
