Kimberly and Derek Munn of Maple & Belmont will lead a workshop on how to design for screen printing. This workshop includes a brief lecture about important considerations when creating work for screen-printing as well as a hands-on activity.
Under the guidance of Kimberly and Derek, each participant will design a drop cap letter to later be screen printed on a tee shirt. So, bring your pencils, pens, paper, sketchbook, and admiration of letter forms for this event. This class has limited seating to allow attendees one-on-one time with the instructors. Letters will be randomly assigned to participants on the day of the workshop.
At the end of the workshop, all letters will be collected and combined into a design that will be screen printed on tee shirts at the screen printing workshop in February. Please note that you do not need to attend both workshops.

The folks of Prince Ink Co. will offer hands-on instruction on the basics of screen printing. Attendees will learn the process of taking created artwork, transferring it to a screen, and from the screen to printing on a shirt. Each participant will print his/her own shirt.
Attendees will learn how to:
- print a positive
- review artwork before printing a positive
- prep and expose a screen
- set up screen on press
- print shirts
The art used in this workshop will be designed by Maple and Belmont and is created from work made during a previous workshop. You do not have to attend the January workshop in order to attend this workshop.

The amount of advice any young designer encounters in the first few years of their professional career is overwhelming. This is especially true in the type and lettering world—an industry with no clear path to follow. In this presentation, James will relay only the savoriest nuggets of wisdom that have traversed his ear canals in the past few years transitioning from student, to working professional.
James was named among Print Magazine's New Visual Artists in 2013, and Typographica included Mission Script on their list of Typefaces of 2012. James recently completed his studies in the TypeMedia program at the Royal Academy of Art in the Netherlands.
The first 50 registrants will receive a free poster designed by James and screen printed by Prince Ink Co.
