“The Introduction to Screen Printing course is ideal if you’ve either never screen printed before, or did it so long ago you forget everything about the process (me). A kind and helpful tutor ensures that everything is explained simply. You go at a pace that’s super-manageable, and there’s plenty of time in each class to get things wrong - and right. The two best things are that you end up with a finished piece of work as well as lots of ideas for what you might do next - a little learning is a dangerous thing, in this case. Totally worth it.” — Kirstie McDermott / House & Home magazine
WHAT TO EXPECT
This four-week course is an excellent introduction to silkscreen printing. Beginners will learn the history of the art form and gain guided hands-on practice in the process of screenprint making from start to finish.
You will practice the photo-stencilling technique and learn how to prep your own black and white artwork (a photograph, digital artwork or perhaps some handdrawn sketches ) for the medium of screenprinting - coating and exposing your own screen, handling screen printing equipment and tools, setting up your workspace, working with water based inks and producing your very own limited-edition print run.
You will learn to print, troubleshoot and experiment with colours, blending and over printing techniques - and come away inspired for your next edition!
€240 including all screen-printing materials PLUS 10% off DFP membership
BYO paper for final prints.
