What You’ll Do
Messy and versatile, screen printing has been associated with countercultural touchstones from A to Z—or from Andy Warhol to zines. In her two-hour course, Little Chair Printing owner Hope Rovelto gets her students acquainted with screen and squeegee as they design shirts and paper prints to take home.
Create a Design
You’ll first make a mylar stencil, either from a drawing you’ve made or a favorite found image, then adhere it to the silk screen.
Put Squeegee to Stencil
With a choice of ink colors, you’ll make two shirts and an unlimited number of paper prints. Extra shirts are available for $5 each.
Mix and mingle while partaking of BYOB and BYO snacks.
Artist, Owner of Little Chair Printing
If you like Modest Mouse, The Shins, Rilo Kiley, or Death Cab for Cutie, there’s a good chance you’ve worn a T-shirt printed by Hope Rovelto. She printed tees for Barsuk and Sub Pop records while working at a Seattle print shop, then moved to Philadelphia and opened her own print studio and gallery. Yet her focus isn’t only on creation—she also teaches the craft and brings novice printers into the fold, using skills she’s honed since the late ’90s.
