Screen Printing for Illustration

Weekend Course


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 fine art reproduction on to paper. Learn how to reproduce your illustrations using multi-colour screen printing during this two-day course.

What will you learn?

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.


Topics covered:

  • A brief history of screen printing and its terminology
  • Paper types, tools and materials in screen printing
  • How to produce your own prints using the methods covered
  • How to sign and edition your prints
