Workshop | Screenprinting Techniques
May 27 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm$100
Screen printing is a widely-used process where ink is pressed through a stenciled silk mesh screen using a squeegee to impress an image onto material, most commonly paper, fabric, or clothing. Think Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe prints! An edition, or multiple identical prints, can be produced with little cost and equipment and is still applicable to fine art, diy, and production industries today.
This workshop is a fun and easy way to get introduced to the printmaking medium and quickly output your artwork onto a variety of surfaces. Students will draw their own artwork on acetate transparencies, coat and expose their screen, and learn the basic techniques and tricks to creating a consistent edition of prints.
All materials will be provided, but we suggest bringing a notebook, pencil, black markers, any source images you would like to use and additional papers (or fabric) on which to screen your images!
Printmaking is a fun and messy business. Please dress appropriately.
Space is limited for this workshop.
