Workshop Description 

We will investigate a variety of approaches for printing original silkscreen images in a non-toxic environment. Techniques include hand-cut stencils, direct drawing and painting, and photo-silkscreen methods. Print on paper, fabric, wood, vinyl, etc. Learn a variety of methods to create an image on a screen and learn methods for multiple color registration. Simple enough for beginners and lots of applications for the artist. Come with a project in mind or experiment with all the techniques.

Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
