This invaluable three-day workshop is essential for anyone starting a silkscreen business or for those using the technique as a design element in textile projects. Participants will learn to print on a variety of cloth surfaces from t-shirts to yardage.They will learn to master a range of single-pull printing methods (repeating patterns, rainbow prints, registration, etc.). All projects are done on 100% natural fibres using high quality, water-soluble fabric paint.

The photographic process of putting an image on a screen will be covered in depth. Each student will learn how to prepare the screen and expose the image. We will work with high-quality, 18” x 20”  wood-frame silkscreens. At the end of the workshop, students will take home the screens and the many samples they have created.

Feel free to bring a small project from home to print on.
