Event description

Description

Session 1: Thursday, April 12
5-7pm.
In this class, we'll design or complete our images and prepare a screen for printmaking. You'll learn feel confident with designing for single colour screenprints, learn playful illustration techniques for screenprinting, and get comfortable with preparing transparencies. We'll learn the ergonomics and economics of stretching screens. The thing that stumps most beginner screenprinters is getting the mesh stretched optimally tight. It’s essential to get this step right to achieve great results later. Working with others under expert guidance makes all the difference. Bring your device and/or your sketchbook!

Session 2: Sunday, April 15
1-3pm
In this class, we'll apply our photo emulsion stencil to the screen. The magic of photo emulsion is that you can create a dozen highly detailed stencils with a simple bottle of emulsion, a makeshift darkroom and washout zone. I swear this class should come with sparkles! The moment when you see your image emerging from the screen you’ll be hooked.
Optional: bring a photo of the closet, sink, or laundry room you might want to use for screenmaking, and we’ll map out the possibilities together.

Session 3: Thursday, April 19
5-7:30pm,
SCREENPRINTING PARTY! Bring your own tshirts, totes, or fabric items and complete a production run in a studio with unlimited paint. Learn what you need set up your own collapsible mini studio in your kitchen, bedroom, or office. If you want more studio time after this and are not already registered, you can pay $20 in cash for Session #4
