Screenprinting (All levels)

Screenprinting is a method of making an image using stencils. These are attached to a mesh that is stretched over a frame. Using a squeegee, ink is pulled through the stencil to create an image. Screenprinting as a process is intrinsic to graphics, advertising and packaging.

What The Course is About:

Screenprinting is a method of making an image using stencils which are attached to a mesh that is stretched over a frame. Using a squeegee, ink is pulled through the stencil to create an image. Screenprinting as a process is intrinsic to graphics, advertising and packaging. This is owing to its versatility of scale, colour and overall, the ease with which you can produce large production runs cost effectively. These factors drew fine artists to using screenprinting as a medium during the 1960s pop art movement. The first half of the course is structured so that you will learn a range of stencil making techniques within the non-photographic and the photographic spheres. Beginning with autographic (non-photographic) stencil making, we will deal with paper stencilling, direct stencilling using wax crayon / liquid filler and wax resist. We will move on to learn about the different ways of making a photographic stencil, through the use of hand drawn positives and photographic positives. Practising with the above methods you will learn how to plan a print. We will also cover setting up your workspace, ink mixing / colour mixing, paper handling, monoprinting and editioning. The second part of the course is structured around your individual application of these techniques.

Materials Required:

What to bring to the first session: The cost of workshop-based materials such as inks, newsprint, chemicals and equipment maintenance are included in the fees. Your main additional expense will be papers and tapes and it is common for students to build their own set of basic art equipment (such as brushes, pencils and knives), although these are available in the workshop.

End of course:

What will I achieve? Having attained a level of technical skill, you will start learning through personal projects and individual tutorials. Screenprinting takes place in a communal workshop and as such, there is a lively and open forum for ideas and discussion. Together we will work towards strengthening your image making skills and so, your sense of authorship
