Screen printing (or silkscreen) is a printmaking technique where layers of ink are pulled through a mesh screen to create a wonderfully detailed image, often with multiple layers of transparent ink interacting with one another. In this comprehensive workshop, students will gain an understanding of the processes involved in creating a screen print on paper within a professional printmaking studio and will leave with the knowledge and experience required to produce work independently.

This course is suitable for all levels with no prior experience needed.

What you’ll learn: ​​​​

  • Both analogue and digital methods of creating stencilsCoating a screen with emulsion
  • Burning the screen on the exposure unit
  • Mixing ink
  • Registering multiple layers
  • Pulling prints
  • Cleaning/ reclaiming screens
