Experiment with photographic screen printing using monoprinting during this two day course.
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. Using photographic techniques, explore the unique painterly effect of monotype with screen printing in this weekend course.
The key concept and success to this technique (in combination with the concept of the monoprint) is in its spontaneity and fluidity.
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.
Monoprints of this nature can often be used as stand-alone prints or in conjunction with other serigraphy processes, once the initial monoprint is complete.
