Print Demo City!: Alternative Screen Printing Methods
Investigate the current trends of print media in contemporary culture and get the tools to make a unique artistic statement using screen printing. This workshop focuses on water-based, photo-screen printing techniques as well as low-tech stencil printing methods. Technical demonstrations cover beginning photo screen printing processes, one- and two-color registration, a combination of hand dyeing, manipulation of the surface, water-soluble markers, and hand-cut and photo stencil methods. Each student creates experimental, unique prints and comes away from this workshop with a toolbox of new printmaking techniques.
