WORKSHOP - brush marks and textures in screen printing
In the basic workshop we look into the essential need-to-know principles of screen printing.
Screen printing is a stencil printing process in which ink is pushed through the open areas of a stencil attached to a fabric screen on to the printing surface below. Colors can be easily registered and layered to produce a multiple color print. Non-toxic water-based inks are used which allow for quick clean up. The inks can be modified to obtain any degree on transparency, opacity and hue. Various stencil making processes allow a range of mark making possibilities to use in developing a screen print.
Every participant will get the opportunity to be part in the making of a small two colour screen print, from beginning to end. Some pointers will be given on how to set up for DIY printing at home.
