Instructor: Sam Rathbun
Level: Beginners and up
Students will learn the "in's and out's" of silk screen printing to make custom printed goods on cloth and paper. Starting with either drawings, photographs, or digitally altered images, participants then transfer these designs onto a variety of surfaces using different techniques such as stencil, drawing with screen filler, and using light-sensitive emulsion in our dark room. Using a commercial printing press students can produce large, small and multi-layer prints. Students will create bold, graphic images based on their own text, sketches or images they bring to class. Students are encouraged to bring along several images and items to print on. Usable materials include heavyweight paper, cotton shirts, canvas rag, and linen. No fuzzy material or nylon.
