This 4-week course is a thorough introduction to screenprinting. We will cover the essentials: how to make a good film positive, how to prepare and expose a silkscreen, and how to print. Beginners, those new to the GSS shop and equipment, and anyone wishing for a re-introduction to screenprinting are encouraged to join. In the first class, you get the run-down of how to prepare your own screen-ready image, as well as how to coat and expose a screen. During the second class, we proceed through all the steps of printing. The remaining classes are for troubleshooting and printing on your own paper, your favorite t-shirts, tote bags for your friends, or you name it!
What we provide:
- Silkscreen to use during class sessions (approx. 20″ x 24″)– available for purchase to take home
- Xerox transparency film (available for purchase)
- Newsprint, proofing paper and printing ink (for in-class demonstrations)
What you bring:
- On the first day, a suggested materials list will be covered in class.
