RESCHEDULED:  Saturdays, July 13 + 20, 2-5pm

Are you interested in printing a particular image on a shirt, jacket, or other fabric item? Students will have time in the AS220 printshop with AS220 Industries member Paris Paris. In this workshop, the instructor will teach the proper techniques to use a silkscreen for fabric printing. Graphic images will be transferred to fabric and paper in a process called screenprinting.

Bring an idea and clothing you want to print on and we’ll show you how it’s done!

The first class will be dedicated to designing and creating proper and efficient designs/artwork for silkscreen. Students will get hands-on experience creating silkscreen negatives by hand and/or digitally.

The second class will be dedicated to teaching students about the dark room and how to properly prep a silk-screen for print. Students will get hands on experience with various printing and registration techniques as-well as troubleshooting.

Instructor: Paris!
