Workshop Description

Learn how to create simple patterns and film for screenprinting by hand. In this workshop, students will play with color, layering, and registration during the printmaking process. If desired, students will then have time to create small textile collages using their hand-printed fabric. This is a great workshop for students who are new to screenprinting, as well as experienced printmakers not used to working with fabric. Please note that students will not be printing yardage or repeat patterns during this introductory class. Basic sewing machine instruction will be provided for those who are new to sewing, but some machine sewing experience is helpful.
