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 create a couple of yards of bespoke printed fabric and have a screen of your own with the skills to print again. You will also gain a solid knowledge of how and where to source printing equipment and materials, how to prepare your personal artwork for screenprinting, how to heat set a printed image, and how to care for your fabric.
Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Screenprinting on Fabric (6-hour workshop) or similar screenprinting experience is required.
