In-Person Printmaking Workshop

Intro to Screen-Printing with Ryan Statz

Screen printing (or silkscreen) is a printmaking technique where layers of ink are pulled through a mesh screen to create a wonderfully graphic outcome, often with multiple layers of transparent ink interacting with one another.

In this comprehensive workshop, students will gain an understanding of the processes involved in creating a screen-print within a professional printmaking studio, and will leave with the knowledge and experience required to produce work independently.


  • Both analogue and digital methods of creating stencils.
  • Coating a screen with emulsion.
  • Burning the screen on the exposure unit
  • Mixing ink.
  • Registering multiple layers
  • Pulling prints.
  • Cleaning/ reclaiming screens

**Please come with an idea, sketch, photograph or reference material to work from. There will be plenty of time to develop this starting point into a unique piece of art!
