Screen Printed Pet Portraits with Melissa Dettloff

  • POST 14500 Kercheval Avenue Detroit, MI, 48215 United States (map)

 

Hosted by POST + Melissa Dettloff, from Ocelot Print Shop.

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 4 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!
