About the course
The beginners weekend course offers the chance to develop a working understanding of screen printing. The course takes place over the weekend, both Saturday and Sunday,10am till 5pm.
Day one runs just as the One Day Introductory Workshop (see other listing). Students will learn the full process from artwork preparation to printing, creating a two colour screenprint. The second day allows students to consolidate their knowledge, this time working on a more complex three colour print.
You will learn how to: coat the screen with the liquid stencil; produce artwork for putting onto the screen; transfer artwork onto the screen using the exposure and washout units; Correct mixing of ink and medium, instruction into building the image through layers within the screen print process.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The days provide participants with a solid introduction to screen printing and an opportunity to come away with two different sets of prints of their own design. The course includes cartridge paper and newsprint, and sixteen sheets of heavyweight Fabriano 285gsm paper. Additional sheets can be purchased at cost price.
Participants are recommended to sample the great range of food at St Nicks Market. Fresh coffee, tea and biscuits are included.
