Learn how to create colourful multi-layered screen prints onto textiles with stencils during this one 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.
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 experiment with pattern and colour using the stencil screen printing method. Students are advised to bring along a selection of fabrics and textiles to print onto.
