Screen Printing On Fabric
The first day will be structured introduction to basic screenprint processes, you will have a chance to get familiar with all tools and machine for silkscreen printing. You will be printing and planning your design using cut-out techniques. You will learn how to mix inks to get the right consistency for the best result. All students will be provided a meter long cotton fabric.
On the second day, you will learn how to coat a screen with photo emulsion and how to oil your positives and expose the image you have brought, transferring the image onto the screens. Then you will learn how to register your image and print using a variety of colours. After all the fun bits, you will learn how to clean and reclaim your screens using a pressure washer and the right cleaning solution, which we called it the ‘stripper’.
On the last day, you will be carrying out your own project using registration. The tutor will answer any question about screen-printing and review what you have learnt. The last session will be for you to work independently under tutor supervision to make sure you have understood all the process that you have learned during the previous weeks.
*Please note that printing on paper and printing on fabric uses different binders and both uses different colour medium. For printing on paper we will be using water base acrylic and for fabric we will be using ink pigment dye. *
What will I achieve by the end of this course
At the end of the course you should be able to print independently and ready to attend Open Access at Craft at No.7. You will be able to move on to an intermediate level course with the same technique. The silkscreen skills you acquired can be applied onto your small business and products, or to elevate your artist portfolio!
