Screen Printing Workshop: Pet Portraits with Melissa Dettloff
Saturday March 9th from 10:30am to 2pm
Entry Level Class - No experience necessary however minors must have a guardian present.
Your pet deserves 15 minutes of fame! And a custom-made portrait!
Learn the basics of screen printing and create a hand illustrated portrait of your favorite furry friend. We'll be using an accessible, non-darkroom method that can easily be replicated at home. Each participant will create an edition of 8 handmade, 8"x10" custom portraits of their own pet using drawing templates and Melissa’s guidance.
Mutual Adoration frames will be available in the shop at a 20% discount for workshop attendees.
We’ll email all registrants with instructions for how to select and send your pet’s photo before class. Nothing fancy needed - high resolution cell phone photos will work fine on newer phone models. Here is a 4-step guide on setting your resolution for Iphones/Ipads. Here is a 4-step guide on setting your resolution for Androids
