Preparing a Digital Image for Screen Printing (Silkscreen, Part 1)
With Michael Peterson

Thursday, December 7th, 7pm
PAVED Arts/AKA Event Space

This course will take participants through the process of preparing a digital image so it can be used as a stencil for screen printing. Topics covered will include techniques for bitmapping images, separating images into CMYK layers for full-colour printing, spot colouring, and limits on how detailed an image can be depending its application (textile vs. paper-based printing).

Participants taking Part 2 will be able to use their image to create a silkscreen stencil, for a two-colour poster.

*Participants should bring a laptop with Photoshop (a trial version is fine).

Michael Peterson is the co-founder and chair of Saskatoon’s Void Gallery, Project Manager for the provincial Professional Practices for Artists training program jointly developed by the Saskatchewan Craft Council and Void, and 2017 Curator for Nuit Blanche Saskatoon.
