Combine graphic elements in a collage-like fashion! Choose photographic imagery as well as an element of written text to print as a two-color silkscreened image.
This workshop is ideal for the novice designer and artist looking to understand the basics of silkscreen. Learn how to coat a silkscreen with light-sensitive emulsion, burn designs, and print directly onto fine art quality paper or poster board. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with multiple screen prints of your own design on paper.
