DIY Screen Printing with Contact Paper Stencils with instructor Heather McLaughlin

Saturday Nov 9th noon-4pm
Sunday Nov 10th noon-4pm

Using tape and contact paper artists can create temporary screen printing stencils. This is a great way to make screen at home with little to no chemicals or equipment. In this workshop artists will create successful designs to cut, create the contact paper stencils by hand and pull a small set of prints. In addition to prints on paper, artists can also print on fabric or other flat materials. This workshop is a 2-day class: On Saturday students will participate in a stencil making and printing demo with work time. Sunday the instructor and all the materials will be available so students can complete additional or more complicated projects.

Heather McLaughlin was born next to the Chesapeake Bay in Baltimore Maryland and relocated to Red Lodge Montana, on the north border of Yellowstone Park, in 1991. After Montana, she continued west to Portland Oregon and continued her studies at Pacific Northwest College of Art. Heather completed her Bachelors of Fine Art in Printmaking in 2005. Since 2005 Heather has been teaching printmaking and youth arts classes in PNCA’s Continuing Education Program and a myriad of programs that partner with public schools like SUN and IRCO. Heather has also volunteered as an art instructor at Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls and served as the Director of Flight 64 (a member-run community print studio). In addition to her art, Heather is a musician, studio manger, performer and production assistant.
