In this workshop you’ll be introduced to the basics of screenprinting. Attendees will learn about the necessary tools and supplies needed in setting up your own screenprinting studio. The one-day workshop will cover best practices from selecting the right screens for your project, choosing and working with ink, squeegees, paper, emulsion, lighting and more!
As a group we will be making a three-color broadsheet poster edition. Using a themed design and prepared screens we will work together to make a poster edition of five. Paper and ink will be supplied for the event.
Wear some clothes that won’t mind a splash paint ;)
