Screenprinting - Evening Course


From Wed 24th April or the Thur 31 October- join us for our 6-week series of screenprinting classes. This class will give participants time to learn the dynamic and colourful process of screenprinting. During this evening course, each participant will develop their screenprint practice by creating multi-layered prints using an array of techniques, from painterly washes, textures, linear drawings and photographic bitmaps to lean flat areas, colour blends and typography.

This evening course will give participants the time to think, re-think, create and re-create artwork between each class, helping them delve into various aspects of their print purchase. To print, the screen is attached to a printing press and acrylic based ink is pushed through the screen mesh onto paper using a squeegee blade. Each layer of colour is printed individually, taking care to register each new ink layer on top of the previous.

This course uses water-based inks on paper which are not suitable for printing on textiles. The process is explored through hands-on practice where participants learn practical skills involved in making a screen print. Paper size (& maximum image size) on the course is approximately 28 x 38cm.

This course entitles you to a FREE 3 month Associate Membership to use the studio and consolidate your skills.
