About the course:

‘Thermofax’ screens were devised by Japanese company Riso, and we’ll be using their newest machine the MiScreen digital screen maker. Once you have the stencil, the method of printing is very similar to regular screen printing but with lighter frames and squeegees. It’s great for printing at home, only takes a few minutes to make up a screen, and is very versatile. The screens last well, are very easy to store, and can be reused again and again.

For day one we’ll be looking at ways to prepare artwork successfully, using the MiScreen to create screens from your designs, screen printing on paper, and combining textured screens with other types of stencil. Day two sees us getting creative on fabric, using our screens on t-shirts or tote bags, making repeat patterns, and printing with fancy effects including foiling on textiles.

Cost: £130.00 / £110.00 members
