Screen Printing On Paper

The first two days will be structured introduction to basic screenprint processes, also giving you the chance to experiment with different multi-coloured techniques. You will be printing and planning your design with cut-outs, monoprints, hand drawn acetates, paper stencils and photo-stencils.

You will learn how to mix inks to get the right consistency for the best result. 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. 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’.

Day three will be your opportunity to use tutor guidance to work more independently on your own project, using whatever combination of techniques suits you best. Over the three days you will learn all the technical details required to print, register accurately for editioning, process screens, mix inks and expose image using or exposure unit. The tutor will answer any question about screen-printing and review what you have learnt.

*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 also 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!
