About this Workshop:

Learn the basics of screenprinting—an artistic, yet economical, method for producing prints from digital or hand-drawn designs. This workshop will prepare you to work independently in the darkroom and studio. You will learn how to prepare images, expose your screen, and print a single color (layer) with water-based inks on paper. Each student will leave with several prints of their own design, along with their very own silkscreen to keep!

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes April 9, 2024. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class. Students will need to gather/purchase additional materials for class (see the materials list below). This list will also be provided with the registration confirmation email.


Registration includes a $60 materials fee to cover the materials supplied in class, including ink, paper, and a brand new silkscreen for you to take home!

In addition, students are requested to bring the following items:

  • (optional) Personal apron or wear clothes that can get a bit messy (we’ll have extra aprons on hand)
  • (optional) Pencil and paper (if you want to take notes)
  • A high contrast, black and white image to work with*—more specific details will be provided at registration
