WoodsTalk Live Presents: Art & Knowledge
Think, Ink, Act: Silk Screen Poster Workshop
What you'll learn in this screen printing class:
Students attending this class will learn how to screen print and how counterculture embraced the art form throughout history for its quick and graphically stunning results.
Designed for both complete newbies as well as artists with some basic knowledge of screen printing who want more practice and instruction, you will learn the fundamentals of silkscreen printing from screen prep to final print, how to properly use screen printing equipment and tools, and basic tips and tricks to print whatever your heart desires.
The day will start with learning the history and mechanics of printing and a hands-on screen printing process demonstration. Half way through, class participants will practice pulling their own prints with the instructor's guidance creating multi-layer poster prints. Screen printing is a wide, wonderful world; explore it!
Note: All screen printing supplies are included in the tuition fee. Bring in tees or canvas totes from home or buy some and print as much as class time allows! Please wear "paint" clothing.
