Screenprint on Fabric Beginners

Experiment with creating a wide range of colour and bold images and print them on fabric with hand cut paper stencils, hand drawn images on true grain and digitally printed positives.

You will be taught how to prepare, coat, expose and wash out silk screens. As well 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 half 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 about which fabrics you should bring with you. This can be anything from a simple piece of fabric to t-shirts, cushion covers, aprons or any other natural fibre garment.

Materials such as inks, binders, emulsion, pens, pencils, rulers etc. are supplied throughout the course.

What is this course for?

This course is designed for complete beginners or those with some experience who wish to refresh their memory of the process.

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 note, this course does not include any photoshop tuition.
