What you'll learn in this woodworking class:

Screen Printing is a simple and effective method of producing an unlimited number of virtually identical prints onto practically any surface. In this workshop, you will learn the steps involved in screen printing, from design conception to finished product. You’ll receive a materials list and instructions for screen printing, enabling you to continue making prints on your own.

How Screen Printing Works
Screen prints can easily be made on paper, fabric, t-shirts, tote bags, glass, and a variety of other materials. To make a print, first a fabric screen is stretched tightly onto a frame and coated with a photosensitive (light reactive) material.

Part of the screen is then blocked with a stencil and is exposed to light through a photo process, leaving your image on the screen. When ink is deposited onto the screen, it is pushed through with a squeegee, leaving the image on the printing surface.

Class Notes
In this introductory course, students will design and make their own single color prints on materials of their choosing. We’ll cover design programs, materials, technique and discuss multi-color, multi-layer designs so you can experiment on your own.

Overview
Skill Level:  Beginner — This course is best suited for beginners with little or no prior experience with screen printing.

What to Bring: Before class, please prepare a design to be screen printed. Bring your design to class along with shirts, fabric, colored paper, or anything else that you would like to print on besides white paper.

Your design should be no larger than 8×10″. Please print your designs in black with high contrast and free of any very fine lines. Artwork can be hand drawn with pen or marker, but students are encouraged to prepare their designs on a computer program like

Length:  3 hours give or take thirty minutes.
