Screenprint on Paper Beginner

Screenprinting has been used commercially since the 1920s however, it began to be widely popularised as an art form from the 1950’s onwards by artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Since then, artists have gone on to push the boundaries of what the process can achieve and these days we can see a huge range of stylistic work from photographs, graphic illustration, expressive mark making and even delicate hand-drawn-like images.

This course will be a structured introduction to basic Screenprinting processes, giving you the chance to experiment with different multicoloured techniques (monoprints, hand drawn acetates, paper stencils and photo-stencils).

Later you will have the opportunity to work more independently on your own project, using whatever combination of techniques suits you best. Over the course you will learn all the technical details required to print using a vacuum bed, register accurately for editioning, prepare screens, mix inks and expose images on our UV box.

Description of requirements

This workshop is both for beginners and for those who wish to refresh their skills.

At the end of the course you should be able to print independently and attend Open Access at East London Printmakers.
