Experimental Screenprint (Dec)

This fun, two day Experimental Screenprint class will offer a crash course in silkscreen through Do-It-Yourself techniques. With an emphasis on printing, we’ll skip all-things-digital and jump right in with hand-drawn stencils and photograms. We will also discuss other alternative techniques, studio set-ups and trouble shoot long-term project ideas. During class, we will test print on alternative materials and students will leave ready to keep printing on paper or fabric in any studio, large or small. This playful class is great for beginners who want to get a little messy or need a refresher and want to learn to bend the basics. Expect to leave with lots of unique prints, a clear understanding of screenprint fundamentals and the confidence to keep printing. All levels welcome.
