Intro to Screen-printing

This course has been postponed until┬áthe fall season – date to be determined. Check back soon for date and details.

This workshop will introduce and explore the traditional, creative medium of screen-printing onto paper and other materials. Students will explore the technical skills and processes involved when printing on various paper-based surfaces, as well as analyze and create images, and then separate, combine and overlay stencilled imagery to produce a variety of colourful, layered artwork. Participants will apply their learning through the completion of an individual in-class print project under the guidance of the instructor. This workshop is perfect for artists, designers and illustrators looking to explore new image making skills.
