Screen Printing Workshop: Pet Portraits with Melissa Dettloff on Saturday August 3 at 1pm

By: POST

$ 90.00

Hosted by Melissa Dettloff (Hooray Forever)

Saturday August 3rd from 1 to 6pm

Your pet deserves 15 minutes of fame! And a custom made portrait!

Learn the basics of screen printing and create a special portrait of your favorite furry friend. During this 5 hour make & take workshop, Melissa will teach you how to create a set of multi-layered screen prints, similar in style and technique to the portraits made by Andy Warhol. These custom 8x10 prints will be created using your own photo. After you register, we’ll email you with instructions. You’ll be asked to submit your photo via email. Nothing fancy needed - cell phone photos will work fine!

This workshop is great for any skill level. Beginners will learn screen printing basics while those with more experience can deepen their skills as we cover techniques such as: making images for screens without a darkroom, using both drawing fluid and stencil techniques, printing split fountains or rainbow rolls, printing halftone images, and registering multiple colors. Come in feeling loose and easy - we’ll be making decisions as we go - layer by layer - and making it up as we go!

Everyone will take home with twelve 8x10 prints!

 

  • Aprons will be provided, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Screen printing ink will stain your clothing.

  • Please note: Registration for this class will close 10 days in advance to allow time for photos to be sent via email and screens to be prepped for each student.
