Hello! We are married screen printing duo Elizabeth Kovach and Ryan Duggan. You may know us from the concert posters we make for bands and venues across the city (and the country) or maybe you've seen a beer label/t-shirt/skateboard/whoopee cushion with Ryan's art on it. 

After many years in the Chicago arts community, we are taking a leap and opening a space of our own! Here we will teach workshops, host art shows, and curate events in the city we love—we can't wait to fill your calendar with fun events at Paper Hat.

We have found the perfect home for Paper Hat and with your support we can build out the space as necessary and purchase materials and equipment needed for these purposes. This is also a great way to reserve a spot in one of our 2019 workshops if you are interested in learning about screen printing!

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge will be getting the studio set up for our workshop rewards, which is why those delivery dates are set back a bit. Once we are ready we will reach out to all supporters who bought a class and begin scheduling ASAP!
