About The Event
Neon Nature Screen Printing
In this workshop you will learn how to screen print and create your own colourful print using shapes from nature with added pops of colour. Working with others you will design and print your original image.
Screen printing is a process of transferring a stenciled design onto a flat surface using a screen, ink and a squeegee which forces the ink through the mesh of the screen. Although fabric and paper are the most common screen-printed surfaces, with special inks you can also print onto wood, metal and plastics. A “stencil” can be cut from thin paper, created photographically, or painted directly onto the screen with screen blockers. Designs for screen prints can use just one shade of colour, or several, but colours need to be applied in individual layers, using a separate stencil for each colour. When attached to the screen a stencil will block any ink coming though the mesh of the screen apart from the open cut away areas. In our workshops we will be cutting stencils by hand rather than painting screen blockers or producing themphotographically which needs more specialist equipment. The Screen printing technique is widely used for printing fabric and designs on t-shirts and is great for producing multiple copies.
Exciting 3 hour workshops where you can learn new textile and art techniques and make practical and beautiful things to bring joy to your life! For 11 to 18 year olds with Clare.
