Level-Up Screen Printing
This workshop is open to printers of all experience levels -- we'll help you move your process and skill sets forward in the direction of your choosing! We will begin with an overview of our shop's screen printing process, with more specific basic instruction for beginning students. Then, each student will plan and print a multi-color edition incorporating the techniques of their choice. This workshop will focus on one-on-one instruction, and with our instructors' 40+ years of combined printing experience, we can speak to a wide variety of printing methods, from standard to experimental. We will be covering many aspects of screen printing, including a number of techniques for multi-color registration, color mixing, and advanced production processes.

All About Drypoint
This class is perfect for illustrators and people who love to draw who want to learn about printmaking. Drypoint is an acid-free, non-toxic intaglio technique that's been around since the 1400s. Images are incised into a plate using a sharp or hard-tipped tool, like an etching needle, creating sharp lines with fuzzy, velvety edges. The plate is inked up like a traditional etching plate, and printed on a printing press, resulting in a beautiful, rich image with bold lines. Various kinds of plates can be used, and we'll explore drypoint on copper, Plexiglas and milk carton.
We will cover common materials used as drypoint plates (plexi glass and metal), how to make marks, building and developing tones and lines, inking, wiping, and printing your plates. Experienced printmakers may bring in etching plates from previous projects and learn how to add drypoint lines to them! No experience necessary and beginners are welcome!
Class dates: April 15-16
Class time: 10AM-5PM
Class fee: $260 + tax, all paper and materials will be supplied
