This course is designed for complete beginners or those with some experience who wish to refresh their memory of the process.
During this course you will experiment with creating, pre-pairing and screenprinting on fabric, hand cut paper stencils, hand drawn images on true grain and digitally printed positives.
You will be taught how to pre-pair, coat, expose and wash out silk screens. As well as also have the opportunity to mix your own inks and learn about the variety of different binders that offer different types of effects. i.e. Transparent colours, opaque colours and puff colours.
On the first day/evening you will be supplied with a meter of plain white cotton fabric to work upon, however, for the remaining days we ask that you bring along your own fabrics to screenprint with. You will be given advice on the first day of the course about which fabrics you should bring with you. This can be anything from a simple piece of fabric, t-shirts, cushion covers, aprons or even baby grows.
All other materials such as inks, binders, emulsion, pens, pencils, rulers etc. are supplied throughout the course.
At the end of this course you will be able to work safely and independently during our open access hours at East London Printmakers.
Please be aware, this course does not include any photoshop/image editing tuition and does not teach you how to create repeat patterns for print.
