Digital File Prep for Screenprinting


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

This one-day workshop, taught by CHP director and artist Liz Wierzbicki, will arm even the most “non­techy” person with digital arsenal of skills needed to prepare their drawings, photographs, and designs into layers for screenprinting, Students will better understand color modes and when to use each of them (CMYK, Greyscale, Bitmap and Duotone). Students will learn tricks for separating an image into multiple layers and adjusting contrast, levels and curves to create high-contrast black and white images from scanned drawings.

Students will practice using a variety of file editing tools to help plan and visualize multilayer prints and create crisp darkroom-ready stencils. Students will then have an opportunity to translate a digital file into a print by having access to open studio time in the shop.

The class will focus on Photoshop and students will bring their own computers with photoshop (we do not have shop computers for use)

Must have taken intro to screenprinting workshop at cat head or certified in screenprinting at cat head press. This workshop does not teach you the screenprinting process, only the digital file preparation.

Fee: $60 (this includes the studio fee to use the shop until 6pm after the digital lesson in the morning 10am-1pm) Visit our website for more details and to register for the workshop.
