Do you have a strange desire to leave your mark on everything you see but find screenprinting a little bit intimidating? Then this one is for you! Spend a couple of hours with us and learn how to set up your own screenprinting operation without having to make a big investment in special tools and equipment. We'll keep things super low-tech.
We'll be using objects you could find around your (or your mother's) house to build our own screens. Then we'll take a little tour through printing history as we learn about the centuries-old tradition of designing and cutting stencils. Finally, you'll have the chance to print on almost any flat object of your choice, so bring your T-shirts, paper, blank posters, and floorboards. By the end of the class, you'll be a whiz with scissors and a master of the x-acto blade.
Don't forget to bring your imagination. We'll use your own drawings or inspirational images to create simple stencils that can be printed again and again.
