About the class

Designed for both complete newbies as well as artists with some basic knowledge of screen printing who want more practice and instruction, you will learn the essentials of silkscreen printing in a full day of printing. All materials are provided. Techniques covered include the basic mechanics of printing and registration; working with hand-cut stencils, photo transparencies, rubylith, and printing on cloth. The day will start with a collaborative group project to learn the mechanics of printing, a 2-3 hour lesson in multilayer hand-cut stencils. In the afternoon, each student will work independently on a multi-layer photo-emulsion print of their choosing. Students may bring source materials to print transparencies (at no extra cost), or work with hand-drawing, rubylith, or a combination of techniques. Please note: This is not a textile printing class, although students may bring up to four shirts or bags to print. If your primary interest is printing textiles, please consider taking Silkscreen Shirts and Bags or Handmade Textile Design. Course description also here. Choose any class time.
