Course Description

One of our most requested classes! Screen printing (or silkscreen) is a printmaking technique where layers of ink are pulled through a mesh screen to create a wonderfully detailed image, 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 on paper within a professional printmaking studio and will leave with the knowledge and experience required to produce work independently.

Intro to Screen Printing will cover:

  • 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
