What I'll learn
Silk Screen printing is a stencil based process using a silk mesh screen to print drawings,
photographs, textures onto many surfaces including paper, textiles, glass and metal.
Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once,
In this course you will use waterbased inks and be able to mix your own colours too.
You will enhance your Photoshop skills! You will learn how to scan/upload a picture, and create your stencil to use as your final print on the silk screen.
You will gain experience in using a printing press, using silk screens including how to take care of the screens.
How I'll learn
You will learn different styles of drawing through Monoprinting, paper stencil making- cutting out drawings in paper to be stuck directly onto screens, photo-based image transfer printing, and how to use metallic foils using glue to print with and heat set with an iron.
Please bear in mind we will be getting inky, so wear old clothes and closed-toe shoes for your safety.
