Silkscreen Workshop

Introducing our step by step, silk screen printing class using water based/ non toxic ink. In this basics class, we’ll be employing a 3 color process using 3 images or patterns.

The instructor will have 3 screens with images already on them, ready to print. She will demonstrate how to print by flooding the screen, then printing. She will show how you can use the same image on one screen to produce different outcomes using layering techniques.

Everyone will practice & get the feel for printing using scrap fabrics. Then everyone can have the chance to create a printed garment of their choice (fabric, scarf, t-shirt, onesie, etc). Bring one with you or purchase fabric at the studio.
