In this workshop, we will investigate a variety of approaches for printing original silkscreen images. Techniques covered include hand-cut stencils, direct drawing and painting, and photo-silkscreen methods. You will be able to print on paper, fabric, wood, vinyl, etc. We will also learn a variety of ways to create an image on a screen, and learn methods for multiple color registration. This workshop is simple enough for beginners, while also including lots of applications for the professional artist. Come with a project in mind, or experiment with all the techniques.
Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22 x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
