Print & Repeat | Exposure Screen Printing Workshop 4th November
9:30am - 1:30pm - Paper Mountain Common Room
The fast and fun world of screenprinting is opened up to you in this morning spent getting to grips with the Beau Est Mien proclaimed ‘messiest method of printing’. There’s nothing delicate, intricate and time consuming about exposure screen printing, it’s about designing beautiful patterns or pictures and then being able to quickly produce a run of prints on fabric, paper or any flat surface. We’ll take your designs and transfer them to a silkscreen by exposing light sensitive emulsion in a darkroom. This allows for any design to be transferred without having to lift a pencil and do any freehand drawing (which often makes people nervous)! Then we will show you the best inks and equipment to use and begin printing your images. You’ll be taking home a fantastic array of works from printed images to printed fabric ready for at-home projects or simply to proudly hang on the wall. Use your newfound knowledge to create runs of printed fabric, printed t-shirts and tea towels or perhaps paper works like stationery and artwork for the wall. There’s no theme for this workshop, so gather around you the images which speak to your heart.
