LEARN TO PRINT!
Myself and my esteemed colleague Cameron Steward (www.twoducksdisco.co.uk) will be facilitating a 2 day screen printing course, taking place at the West Yorkshire Print Workshop, the studio where we both print much of our work.
The course is aimed at people who have an interest in printing gig posters, so will cover such topics as:
- Working with bands/labels & the legalities gigposters
- Making your design 'screenprint friendly' - understanding the pros and cons of the medium
- Using such techniques as trapping and overprinting
- Screenprinting accurately and at speed!
The ideal participant would be someone with a sense of humour, who is willing to ask daft questions and get their hands dirty. Also they must be aged 18 or over.

And if you are interested - move quick friend as I think there many only be 1 or 2 places left.
At this very moment there is also an exhibition of gigposters at the studio, aptly titled 'This is a GigPoster.' If you were interested in having a look at the studio, you should swing by soon and check out the work on show.
