Artist Jef Scharf has devised a process that can take a drawing to film, then to a screen and finally to print, on paper, a shirt, a table – whatever. The process depends on a silk-screen box named Shirley T and an exposure box for screens named Rose Louise. (No, I don’t know why; if you take the class, you can ask.) In the class he will teach at Arts Collinwood, students begin by making drawings which are collected, scanned and cobbled into a single film for screen burning, which takes about two hours for exposing and washing out the screen (probably tedious for children, says Jef, but “adults and scientists” would enjoy it.” Then the image is printed, on whatever the chosen medium is, and hung to dry until . . . everyone goes home. A bundle of t-shirts have been generously donated by Gallery Wolfy Part II for the workshop. A limited number of shirts will be available for class participants to keep. Shirley T and Rose Louise will take up permanent residence at Arts Collinwood, to be used whenever someone is inspired to do another workshop. This one is funded by an Artists in Residence grant, thanks to the Kresge and Ford foundations, and supported by Arts Collinwood, CPAC, NSDC, LINC, Zygote Press, Bruce Edwards, Pat Deering and J.C.
People are encouraged to bring ideas for the shirts that we could execute and expose on some screens. think light ink on black shirts.
The workshop will begin at 10am and go until 4pm with a 30 minute break around 12:30 or so. The class is free and no prior registration is necessary. Download Flyer Here
