Limerick Printmakers: Intensive Silkscreen weekend course.
Silkscreen printmaking is one of the most recognizable & popular forms of printmaking and lends itself really well to high volume production and both high contrast and layered multiple colour images. The process involves transferring an image to a mesh screen. The image blocks out the negative space so that when ink is firmly pressed through the screen using a squeegee, the desired areas are printed onto the paper/fabric. LP’s two-day intensive course will guide you through the entire process under the guidance of LP’s silkscreen tutor Derek O’ Sullivan. This course will include:

• Studio health & safety/best practice
• Image selection and preparation/colour separation using software
• Screen: Mesh sizes, screen selection and care
• Process of transferring images to screen using photo sensitive emulsion and exposure unit
• Printing: Registration of image, ink & paper selection, printing technique, trouble shooting, creating multiple colour prints
• Information on cleaning/storage of screens
