Screen Printing: Fun on Fabric
Convert your own drawing or design to a collection of hand-printed items in this energetic and informative one-day workshop. While traditional screen-printing normally requires an exposure unit and photo-sensitive emulsion, screen-printing with stencils is the perfect do-it-at-home option.?
Students will bring a bold black and white drawing to the workshop and work with the instructor refine the artwork (as needed) to be “print-ready”. ? In this workshop, students will learn the basics of screen printing with stencils: how to prepare a screen using cut stencils or painting with screen blockers, ?and how to print their own designs using textile inks.?
Everyone should bring five items of their choosing to print. As long as they are fabric and flat, we can help you print on it! Shirts, tote bags, tea towels, bandanas, and thrift store jean jackets will all work great. Leave with a wearable work of art, a surprise gift for a friend, or an eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags!
