UP! Fair Workshop
-DIY Screenprinting Techniques with Cricket Press-
The Carnegie Center for Literacy & Learning
251 West Second Street
One of the characteristics of many “boutique” comics is their unique, hand-printed covers - many of which are printed by the comics creators themselves. Screen printing is one of the most basic forms of printmaking that can be done at home with relatively few materials. Learn the basics of screen printing and how to give a finished look to your comic. A guide for beginners and basic materials list will be provided to all attendees. While you’re there try the process yourself and walk away with your own hand-pulled print!
This event is one of many free workshops being held as part of the upcoming UP! Fair: A Celebration of Sequential Art and the Independent Publisher.
