Stencil Art for Beginners

A quick introduction into the basics of stencil making... following a quick discussion what equipment to use... as we are lucky and have access to lasercutters and other state-of-the-art equipment!

After we decided on a motive and all the details we'll have some hands-on cutting and spraying experience. :)

Examples:

Here is what we could probably do with stencils:

Outline for the workshop:

1. bring your idea - could be your own drawing, pic from a magazine or the interwebs...

2. let's quickly discuss and decide on technical details, complexity, colors and the "how to's"

3. cutting by hand or lasercutter etc.

4. get the cans out!



Material:

Best would be if you can Bring Your Own Stuff

BUT

i could donate some material to get started as:

  • cardboard
  • cutters
  • old cr*p vinyl records including covers we can use for the stencils
  • 3m spray mount
  • couple of spraycans

...


Costs:

As i'm creating lots of my own art with spraycans i could bring some leftovers to get started. But i'd suggest to let me know what colors you want to use and then chip in a bit of money so we could go and buy some cans together if needed...

Or you bring whatever you have left from the last mission. ;)

Best shop nearby seems to be the one on bethnal green road near richmixx and bricklane: http://www.chromeandblack.com/

maybe we can even negotiate special discounts if we buy cans there regularly?


Ok, if you are interested in this kind of hackspace activity please leave your tag and some comments...
