Screen Printing With Paper Stencils

Screen printing is one of the most direct methods of producing multi colour images. The screen print is produced using a rectangular frame over which a fine mesh has been stretched. Areas of mesh not to be printed are masked out using paper stencils and inks are pushed through the mesh's unmasked areas using a squeegee, so producing an image on the paper surface below.

Learn how to cut your own paper stencils, transfer these onto a screen printing frame and produce wonderful printed images onto paper.

Tutor will provide all materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your fee.

Students are requested to bring along their own simple images for inspiration.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and improvers.

A picnic style lunch is provided.
