Participants can expect to learn a brief history of screen printing, how to create images suitable for the medium, how to burn screens, mix ink, prepare paper, and of course, print! The instructor will guide participants in using specialty artist tools in to our newly-renovated screen print studio. Completed prints can be made on paper or apparel (t-shirts, tote bags, etc).
