The Art of Screenprinting

Are you an illustrator or artist, just left school or wish to start printing?

Through learning how to break down images into separations and the techniques of combining stencils and overlaying imagery, you will be able to produce stunning multi-coloured designs and finished pieces of artwork.

This course is ideal if you are planning a career as a print technician, studio helper, workshop assistant, or as an artist and designer or perhaps a complete beginner that wishes to try screenprinting for the first time.

With expert guidance from your tutor Donna Peters, this hands-on course will introduce you to all the equipment and a wide range of screenprinting techniques using water based screen-printing processes.

You will be one of only 12 students, so you will have maximum individual attention from your tutor. You will use photographic stencil emulsions to make screens from photographic, digital or hand-drawn sources.

You will use methods of working directly on the screen mesh, therefore allowing experimental print work to be carried out for use with paper and fabrics.

What you need to bring

A1 or A2 smooth Cartridge paper (150 – 300gsm), apron or overalls, a small selection of Daler Rowney System acrylic paints, a roll of masking tape, scalpel, a small brush, latex gloves, basic drawing materials, eraser, sharpener (see appendix for suppliers), a sketchbook and selection of images that you would like to use.
