Screen Printing Taster Session
Sat 3 August 2019 (11am – 1pm)
Learn how to create colourful multi-layered screen prints using stencils during this Summer School taster session.
What will you learn?
A screen print (also referred to as a serigraph or silk screen) is a planographic method of printmaking using stencil techniques and is utilised for both fine art reproduction on to paper and surface textile printing.
Screen printing, in its most basic form, utilises block stencils to push ink or dye through a fine woven mesh with a squeegee to achieve the desired image. Layers of colour can then be built up with multiple stencils, allowing the ink to dry on the surface (on either paper or fabric) between layers.
Students will learn how to create 2-3 colour screen prints using the stencil screen printing method. Please note our concessionary and student discounts do not apply for taster sessions.
Suitable for ages 13+.
* Children younger than 18 may be accompanied by a parent (at no extra cost). Please note these classes are not suitable for children younger than 13 years old due to the printmaking machinery/tools involved.
If you are booking for a young printmaker and would like to accompany them during the session, please note your name in the Order Notes when checking out.
