A two week introduction to silkscreen printing! Screen printing is a versatile process that can be used to transfer graphic images to paper, wood, and fabric.  It is ideal for making t-shirts, posters, coasters, greeting cards/stationery, and more.  Bring an idea and something you want to print on and we’ll show you how it’s done.

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to screen printing in two sessions.  (This class is also offered as a one-day intensive.)  Participants will design, print, and exchange a two-color print with a maximum dimension of 8″ x 10″.  The first class will be dedicated to designing and creating stencils by hand or with the laser copier.  Participants spend the second class learning proper printing techniques and registration, and troubleshooting.  The workshop will end with a print exchange.
