Silkscreen offers an innovative technique of repetition and manipulation. This 5-day workshop will introduce participants to the process of silkscreen printmaking and learn how easy it is to set up a silkscreen studio in your home. Participants will use several stencil techniques from paper stencil to photo emulsion and explore edition printing, printing on a variety of surfaces and mono-printing. Silkscreen is a versatile medium for fine art printing as well as fabric printing, graphic design, installation, painting and sculpture.
