What you'll learn in this screen printing class:

Designed for both complete newbies as well as artists with some basic knowledge of screen printing who want more practice and instruction, you will learn the essentials of silkscreen printing in a full day of printing. 

All materials are provided. 

Techniques covered include the basic mechanics of printing and registration and working with various methods to construct a screen print: hand-cut stencils and drawing, photo transparencies, and spot color. 

The day will start with a collaborative group project to learn the mechanics of printing, a 2-3 hour lesson in multilayer hand-cut stencils. In the afternoon, each student will work independently on a multi-layer photo-emulsion print of their choosing. 

Students may bring source materials to print transparencies (at no extra cost), or work with hand-drawing, rubylith, or a combination of techniques.

Question from Breena K.
I want to print a picture from my photos onto a piece of sheer material for a curtain. Is this possible?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Breena! The class limit students to working on 12.5x19 material. Printing a curtain is going to be way beyond the scope of this class or the physical skill a student can hope to acquire with 6 hours of instruction. Thank you.

Question from Paula B.
Hello, do students get to learn how to make their own screens for printing at home? Thanks!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Paula! Yes, the material students learn can easily be translated into working from home. However, not all parts of the screen printing process translate easily into a home printing environment. Students also make their own screens for the class, but they do not get to take them home. Shoestring Press can also advise students on what they would need for an effective home printing set-up.
Answer from Paula B.
Thanks! That’ll do. Will wait for a new schedule to sign up.
