CMYK Screenprint with Neil Kerr

Tuesday 19th November, 6pm @ Belfast Print Workshop

CMKY (cyan, magenta, yellow, and key – aka black) is the 4 colour separation used across colour printing. In an extension of Neil’s popular weekend workshop, this course will feature in-depth instruction on preparing photographic and digital imagery for creating a 4 layer, CMYK or full-colour screenprint. Neil Kerr is an artist and musician who regularly uses screenprinting to produce limited-edition graphics for vinyl sleeves, prints, posters and clothing for his own projects as well as special commissions.

6 Week Equivalent Course; Tuesdays Nov 19th, 26th, Dec 3rd, 10th and Saturday December 14th (full day).

The four evening sessions will focus on image processing and registration using Photoshop as well as screen set-up and preparation. The final long-day will cover a range of printing techniques and participants will produce a small edition of works from their own imagery. This course is particularly suitable for those with some experience either in screenprint of graphics, looking to take their work to the next level but beginners are also welcome as all steps will be covered.

Class sizes are limited and only payment secures your place – if online booking is not for you please don’t worry – you can still book and pay for classes by cash or cheque in person at the workshop, contact BPW prior to visiting, by email to: events@bpw.org.uk or telephone 028 9023 1323.

Theology In The City with Padraig O’Tuama

Wednesday 20th November, 12.00pm @ Belfast Cathedral

Belfast Cathedral is hosting a series of conversations around traditional bible stories inviting participants to dialogue across difference.

For many people, the bible is a source of division and even conflict. But what if the apparently simple stories which many have been familiar with since childhood actually allow for more complexity and open up space for discussion? Could bible stories actually teach us how to handle our differences better?

Free to attend, each session will begin with Eucharist at 12 noon.

A sandwich lunch will be available from 12.30pm and the conversations will begin at 1.00pm finishing promptly at 2.00pm allowing people to return to work.

See the list of remaining sessions below:

20 November 2019 – Pádraig Ó Tuama

27 November 2019 – Glenn Jordan

4 December 2019 – Glenn Jordan & Sarah Williamson
