About this Workshop:
Join us for two days of inky fun! Students will learn about the art of screenprinting for both paper and fabric design. We’ll explore different techniques for image creation and practical tips for color and registration, all while learning how to use the tools and equipment of Pyramid’s Screenprinting Studio and Darkroom. Students will design and print their own small edition of either t-shirts or posters.
At the end of the workshop, students will have a basic understanding of how to properly use the equipment and operate in a functioning community print studio. Students will also have the opportunity to learn more about becoming certified and using the studio independently beyond the class.
Registration closes March 27, 2023 and includes all necessary materials.
Please note: Students are responsible for providing their own lunch. A microwave and refrigerator are available for use.
CLASS MATERIALS LIST:
Registration includes all materials—just come ready to have fun! In addition, you may want to bring the following optional items for class:
- Personal apron (we’ll have extras though)
- Notepad, sketchbook, and any other favorite writing/drawing tools for developing your ideas or taking notes
