About this Workshop:

Fabric is a fantastic and flexible substrate to print onto and can be translated into a great range of applications. This hands­-on introductory class will provide instruction on the screenprinting process, specifically for fabric. You will learn about sourcing printing equipment and materials, preparing your personal artwork for screenprinting, various artistic printing methods, heat setting a printed image, and fabric care. 

Upon registration, students will be given guidelines on how to source and/or create their images.

Level: Beginner – no previous experience necessary

Registration closes May 7, 2024. Material fees are included to cover consumable materials provided in class, including a brand new silkscreen for you to keep. Students will also need to supply additional items of their own—please see the materials section below for details.
