Screen Printing Repeat Patterns

Weekend Course

screenrepeat

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 produce repeat patterns using 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.

This technique can be used for both paper and textile printing. Students wishing to print onto fabric should bring along a length of (preferably) white cotton, approximately 1m by 3m.

 

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
