How to make a screen print poster? This workshop is about hands on poster making with GIMP for multi-color screen printing, just as Joe’s monthly posters are done.

The main focus will be put on the steps to be performed in GIMP, a free software graphic editor available for all major operating systems, in order to produce proper files and designs to be used for screen printing.

The final result can then be send to your local screen print collective for large series of copies but could also be used as blueprint for d.i.y. silk screens.

# We will use GIMP as graphical tool (http://www.gimp.org).

# No further knowledge of GIMP necessary

# We have a beamer for visualisation

# Bring your own laptop if possible, with GIMP already installed, so that we do not need to spend time installing software.

# If you already have some designs ready, bring them along
