This four-week course is an excellent introduction to silkscreen printing. Beginners will learn the history of the art form and gain guided hands-on practice in the process of screenprint making from start to finish.
You will practice the photo-stencilling technique and learn how to prep your own black and white artwork (a photograph, digital artwork or perhaps some handdrawn sketches ) for the medium of screenprinting – coating and exposing your own screen, handling screen printing equipment and tools, setting up your workspace, working with water based inks and producing your very own limited-edition print run.
You will learn to print, troubleshoot and experiment with colours, blending and over printing techniques – and come away inspired for your next edition.
Damn Fine Print will provide all printing supplies, film positives, inks, aprons and safety gear and a limited supply of paper but we advise you to BYO paper for your final prints or you can purchase our in-house stock from the studio. (Coloured and patterned paper can produce great results also). Some old cloth rags always come in handy too.
