Living Proof will be hosting two new EXCO classes this Fall/Winter both at the Living Proof Shop – Dates/Registration will be available very soon – check back.
Saturday, November 23th 11am-4pm;
Sunday, November 24rd 12-5pm
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 11×17 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 bring their own image to print, following the advised guidelines provided.
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/ubs drive) that are appropriate for 2-color (layer) paper printing 11×17 in. or smaller. Participants are free to bring along their own paper, or use paper provided. The first days class will be a full morning and afternoon and include time for preparing images at the the living proof shop, Boxed Lunch or Lunch at the Global Market around 1ish, a studio tour, and screen prep. Feel free to bring coffee/drinks/snacks with you. We were originally planning to meet at the library but alternatively have computer work stations set up at the shop to use to cut down on transportation time and the learning curve with new equipment. We will have Photoshop and Gimp available for last minute edits to images. The second Day will be printing only, where you’ll be working in partners to complete your editions. 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. It is likely that we will end early on Sunday, so be prepared for that. Some of you may finish before others.
