Celebrate all things printed this November at the inaugural Halftone Print Fair in Dublin.
Here’s a new term for your vocabulary: halftone. According to Wikipedia, it is the reprographic technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size or in spacing.
And here’s an entry for your diary: Halftone, Dublin’s fresh new print fair takes place this November at The Library Project and Black Church Print Studio. It will look at different print processes and how they coexist in a range of disciplines and creative practices.
The fair consists of workshops, tours and demonstrations of techniques across screenprinting, stencil, lithography, photo-etching and inkjet printing. Visitors will also have the opportunity to pull their own print with Damn Fine Print.
Black Church Print Studio is a purpose-built space for all things print related. Tours throughout the event will give visitors an insight into the printmaking process, the history of print and the tools involved.
An open call for submissions is now open. All work will be on sale and display throughout the fair from the launch date of 19th November. Stay tuned for more events still to be announced.
