A new two day introduction to screen printing, covering traditional and experimental techniques.
On Day One you will learn the basics in screen printing, using small screens and thermofax before moving on to create a two or three colour tonal design using the larger screens. You will learn how to mix inks and register a multicolour design.
On Day Two you will be introduced to further experimental techniques, including monoprinting with screens and working with positive stencils. In the afternoon you will complete your final two colour design.
You will leave with… three tonal prints and five two-colour prints on paper, as well as your experimental papers. You will have the skills to keep printing at home or at Print Club.
