Screen printing offers many creative ways to develop editions of artworks. In this one-day workshop you will learn a key screen printing technique – how to create stencils photographically. Xtina Lamb will take you through the whole process and arm you with tips to get the best results. Your artwork can be textured or clean line, large blocks of colour or fine detail. The original artwork is created in black and white, and the stencil can be printed in a single colour or a gradient of colours.
The day begins with discussion of the process and examples of artworks, then it’s on to reclaiming a screen with a high pressure washer. We’ll coat the dry screens with photo emulsion, and while they’re drying in the dark, start preparing your artwork. Exposing the screen on the light box is next, then washing it out to create the stencil. Finally we’ll be printing the screen onto your choice of paper or textiles.
No experience is necessary, the class is suitable for beginners, and those wanting to refresh their screen printing skills.
