Screen printing, also known as silkscreen printing or serigraphy, is one of the most versatile and accessible of all printing processes. In screen printing an image is transferred onto a fine mesh screen with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, then ink is forced into the mesh openings with a squeegee and printed onto just about anything.

Join us for our four week DIY Screen Printing Class. This workshop will provide an in depth understanding of the screen printing process. Students will learn everything they need to know to screen print in their own home/studio using affordable equivalents of high-cost equipment. During class, students will complete at least two silkscreen projects using their own designs that they prepare at home. Each student will receive a workbook filled with information and tips for continued printing after class! Bring design ideas and a smile and we will provide the rest!

Materials are provided, though you are welcome to bring in additional surface and inks. Students are welcome to purchase inks from the Oil and Cotton shop with a 10% student discount.
