Dojo Werksum Series: Ghost Press x Keara McGraw

The Dojo Werksum Series Presents: 

Ghost Press x Keara McGraw

This class will be $10 and you MUST e-mail thedojochi@gmail.com
to reserve your spot and recieve further details. 

Join Chicago-based illustrator Keara McGraw and Ryan Troy Ford of Ghost Press for an intro-to-screenprinting workshop. We’ll explore this printmaking medium over the course of evening, from exposing screens to pulling a multiple-color print.

We’ll be exposing one demo screen from start to finish; learning about each step of the process along the way and pulling a two-color print. 

Participants are invited to submit one image of their own to print in class. We’ll even prep screens beforehand! Wondering what kind of imagery lends itself well to screenprinting? Here are a few tips for this workshop: 

-8”x10” image dimension limit
-For best results, it's important that your image resolution is in the 300dpi range
-Keep your image graphic or text-based. Line art images work great. 

Participants will leave the class with a demo print, prints of their own image, and a list of resources that cover Chicago’s accessible resources for continuing a screenprinting practice.
