COURSE DETAILS:

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 hand drawn 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!

PRICE
€250 including all screen-printing materials PLUS 10% off DFP membership
BYO paper for final prints.

WHAT TO BRING
Damn Fine Print will provide all printing supplies, film positives, inks, aprons and safety gear and a limited supply of paper but we advise you to BYO paper for your final prints or you can purchase our in-house stock from the studio. (Coloured and patterned paper can produce great results also). Some old cloth rags always come in handy too. 

 

WHAT TO WEAR
Dress up or dress down but we advise against wearing your Sunday best!
Inks spatter and fingers are clumsy – you get the picture!

Limited number of Participants (6 maximum per course) so get in early folks!

BONUS!
On completion of the course you will be eligible to become a Damn Fine Print member with 10% off fees.

“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
