Event description

Description

This is a complete and thorough workshop where participants will have the opportunity to learn the craft of screen printing from the hand of professional designers and on a real printing studio.
The workshop groups are kept small in size (maximum 6 per course), allowing each participant to get more personalized instruction and hands-on experience working with the press and other tools.

During the first day of the workshop you'll learn the history and theory of screen printing, from it's beginnings in the printed textile industry, to its current state as a versatile art medium. The latter half of the class will be spent getting oriented in the print shop and learning how to coat a screen with emulsion.

On the second day you'll gain insight into the science, best practices, and crucial small details that will help make huge differences in your finished printing work. Once you're ready to get your hands dirty, you'll learn how to expose a screen, and then register and print a two-colour poster designed specially for the class!

On the third day you'll be confident and ready to use and print your own one-colour conceived design, either on paper or textiles. This third class also allows an opportunity for more instruction and a chance to learn some advanced techniques.
