Intro to Screenprinting, Saturday, April 4
Title: Intro to Screenprinting
Description: Screenprinting is a variety of stencil printing, using a screen made from fabric (silk or synthetic) stretched tightly over a frame and when ink is pushed through the screen with a squeegee, an image is created.
Learn how to make an 8" x 10" two-color screenprint on paper. We will use drawing fluid, screen filler, ink, and a squeegee to print on ten 8" x 10" pieces of screenprinting paper. This is a great workshop to learn some basics about screenprinting.
