About this Workshop:
Are you interested in taking screenprinting on fabric to the next level? In this workshop, you will learn how to register and print multiple colors, how to mix transparent base into ink to create overlays of color, and how to ‘unhinge’ the screen and print large. You will leave with 2 yards of bespoke printed fabric, a screen of your own, and the skills to do it again.
Level: Intermediate—Introduction to Screenprinting on Fabric (or Paper) or similar screenprinting experience (6 hours) is required
Registration closes May 12, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.

“I really valued all the information I learned and being able to keep my screen! I feel so much more knowledgable and can’t wait to buy fabric ink and print more!”
