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. Explore the basics of stencil printing, experimenting with registration and overlaying colour during this one-day course.
What will you learn?
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.
This traditional technique of screen printing is to create the stencil out of a non-porous material by hand (much like a papercut) and then applying the stencil to the mesh of the screen before producing multiple prints on to paper or fabric.
