Course Details
Learn how to design and print your own multi-coloured screen prints during this editioning course. This course is part of a series of workshops exploring printmaking editioning in conjunction with our International Print Exchange.

 

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 to transfer images onto the screen, this technique allows exploration and investigation as a method of reproducing artwork specifically with the intent of producing an edition of fine art prints, as well as analysing composition and aesthetic design.

Experimentation and combining both hand drawn elements and digitally produced design means that this technique is ideal for beginners or those interested with multiple reproduction of prints for either commercial purposes or their own artistic endeavour.

Participants in this course will be shown how to produce an edition of ten prints in this printmaking process, and are given the opportunity to submit their prints to take part in the International Print Exchange (IPE submission fee is included in the course price). All materials and notes are included in the price of this workshop. No previous experience of printmaking is required.

 

About the IPE

The International Print Exchange is an annual event organised by Green Door Printmaking Studio. We invite national and international printmakers to complete an edition of ten prints in any chosen printmaking technique. Each participating printmaker creates and submits a limited edition of ten prints specifically for the exchange. These prints are created using a recognised fine art printmaking technique with archival materials. Of the ten prints submitted, Green Door Printmaking Studio keeps two; the first for our archive and exhibition; the second for sale to fund future exchange projects (in return, if sold, this printmaker will receive free entry to the following year’s exchange). The remaining prints are randomised and sorted, and each printmaker receives eight random prints in return from all printmakers all over the world.
