DIY Silkscreening

DIY Silkscreen


Upcoming dates:
- August 9, 12 - 4pm
- September 20, 12 - 4pm
- October 11, 12 - 4pm
- November 15, 12 - 4pm
- December 13, 12 - 4pm

In this 4-hour intensive workshop you will learn how to make your own silkscreening set-up that can run right off your kitchen table. You will learn how to prepare a screen, transfer an image, and make a print from start to finish. We supply a tote bag, or you may bring your own t-shirt. Let us guide you through this notoriously tricky medium so that you can print at home with confidence. 

Materials to bring: 
Your ideas, artwork design/reference for what you might like to print (black and white only–bold graphic shapes work best), and additional clothing or items you may want to print on. You will be given t-shirts and/or tote bags to print on in class. Please wear clothes that can get messy.

The art [design] should be no bigger than half of a letter sized paper. If you are able to bring it already printed onto acetate you will be able to bypass the tracing step of the process. 

Materials fee: $40, payable in cash at the workshop. Includes 4 tote bags, a reusable screen, a squeegee and take home instructions
