Introduction to Screen Printing and Studio Practices.

We will run through a basic history of screen printing everyone will be shown the artwork we produce in the studio as well as all the equipment used and techniques used to achieve the finishes of certain prints.

Artwork.

We will look at how to separate the digital artwork to make it print ready, including createing halftones, trap and techniques used to improve print quality. We will then create all the negatives ready for exposing.

Screens.

We will prep and coat our own screen and show the whole pre-press process, giving tips and advice to be able to achieve great exposures at home. We will then expose the screen and make screens print ready.

Print.

We will mix our own ink colours, set up on the print bed and then print an edition of 5 of each of the first colour, highlighting printing methods and variations within the process for the diffrent techniques Screen Printing can be used in.

Clean Up & Strip

We will then clean out and strip the screens in preparation for day two and the second colour.

DAY TWO

- Artwork must be supplied 5 working days before the beginning of the course to ensure it is print ready and to ensure any specially required inks are instock.

- Screen Printing is a bit of a stop start process, having to wait for elements to dry/cure etc. but there will be lots to keep everyone entertained and the day is geared to have minimal wait times.
