'Intro to Screen Printing' in the Bluecoat

Course sessions: 4th / 11th / 18th / 25th September 2014
Thursday evenings 6-9pm

You don’t need to bring any materials to the sessions as paint (water based acrylic), paper, screens, aprons and cleaning materials are all provided, it’s just bring yourself.

If you have done a bit of printing in the past but feel a bit rusty then this could be a good refresher. If you've never stepped inside a print room it's ok too! It’s a really friendly atmosphere and I’ll be covering all the basics with technical advice throughout each evening.

If you have anything in particular you would like to print or ideas you would like to discuss then we can chat about that on the first session – it’s as much about what you’d like to learn too! You can be as creative and experimental as you wish… and ask any questions along the way.

One of the aims is to enable you to feel confident enough to book the studio to use on your own after the completion of the course.

Here’s a basic overview of the four sessions:

Wk 1 - Printing with Paper cut stencils

Wk 2 – How to make a one colour photo stencil print

Wk3 – How to make a two colour photo stencil print

Wk 4 –Your work

You’ll have the opportunity to create prints using techniques from previous weeks, experiment using different papers / ink opacities. Get used to using the equipment and printing without me hovering by you - I am there if you need me though :)
