About this Event

SCREEN PRINTING BASICS – PRINTING ON PAPER
This class will review the tools and supplies needed for screen printing at the Makerspace or at home. We will concentrate on techniques oriented towards poster and fine art printing, but the lessons learned are also useful for printing on t-shirts.

You will:
Learn about the appropriate applications of screen mesh count so you will know what type of screen will work best for your projects.
Learn about camera ready art for use with photo emulsion.
Understand the application of stencils, drawing fluid, and screen filler to achieve the results you want.
Hands on demonstration to include pulling a multicolor print, using water-based inks on paper.
Learn to clean up and reclaim screens both with the tools at the Makerspace and at home.

A $5 materials fee covers supplies (paper, inks, & screen resists), and will enable you to take home your own hand printed poster. Please pay in cash to the instructor at the start of class.

Special Considerations and Warnings

Please wear clothing that you can risk staining from the inks.
