Screen Printed Poster

Short Course

screenposter

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, learn how to produce your own A3 poster / art print. Suitable for beginners.

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.

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 A3 sized poster prints.

This method of reproducing artwork photographically, using both hand drawn and digitally produced design, is both an important tool for commercial products as well as a unique and entertaining way of creating personal items that can be given to significant others or kept as sentimental keepsakes.

This course would act as a perfect refresher for anyone who has already got some knowledge of screen printing.
