Expanded Screenprinting

5 Days Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Mandy Tolley

About the course:

Much more than a basic introduction to screen printing, this course will take you from complete beginner to accomplished screenprinter in the space of an intensive but fun week. Starting from the basics of mixing ink, setting up the screen bed, and printing base colours, you will go on to learn how to coat & expose screens, overprint and register your layers. By the end of day 2 you will have finished your first edition of screenprints. You will move on to be shown different techniques for creating positives and making stencils, such as mark resist film and frisk stencils allowing you to experiment, vary your ideas and approach to screenprint. You will also be shown mono-screenprinting, and reduction screenprinting and at the end of the week you will see the endless possibilities of screenprint.
