Intro to Screen Printing with Yoni Asega
Saturday, September 12, 2015 | 1-3pm | $20 materials fee
This workshop will explore the basics of screen printing, a process derived from stencil printing. We will go over screen printing basics, history, screen printed monotypes and will cover two stencil making methods: photo emulsion and hand cut stencil.
If you choose to do a hand cut stencil it would be best to have your design cut out and ready to print in order to take full advantage of printing time. Best materials for hand cut stencils are: contact paper, thin plastic transparency paper, wax paper, or laminate copy paper. Alternatively, if you want to print a larger edition (10+ prints of the same image) I can burn your image on a screen using photo emulsion for an additional $20 fee. Files should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 29th. Acceptable files are .tiff , .Ai or .PSD. If you don’t want to make a design but would still like to take the class there will be a few designs that you can choose from.
Water based inks will be provided in this workshop as well as newsprint for everyone to print on. You can also bring your own materials such as t-shirts, higher quality paper, etc. This course is suitable for beginners and for those looking for a refresher. If you have any questions, please contact us at 408.354.2646 or at email@example.com. Cost for this workshop: $20 materials fee.
