Screen Printing 2 Workshop

In July we organized a Screen Printing workshop (see Photos on Flickr) at Shepherd Print Studio in the SoWa District of Boston’s South End. Liz Shepherd taught the basics of screen printing and then each participant went about printing his/her own work. It was such a fun,productive time that we got a special request to do part 2. So here it is:

September 29, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Here are the details:

Screen Printing 2 Workshop 
Set a digital print and a screen print of the same imagery side by side and you will see a world of difference between them. Screen printing makes available the kind of layering techniques that graphic designers know from Photoshop but the resultant print is infinitely more tactile and alluring. This workshop will focus on creating multi-layered, many colored screen prints. Working with multiple variations, images can be juxtaposed to create dramatic effects and bring unexpected meaning and results to the work. The emphasis will be on mixing transparent colors and overprinting them. Attendees will be provided with guidelines for image creation and materials on which to print.

Screen printing is one of the most popular, versatile, and accessible methods of printmaking. Renowned printmaker and instructor, Liz Shepherd, will lead this all-day workshop with an intro to multi-layering. We’ll then prep screens and print the art you provide. Bring whatever paper you’d like, garments or other fabric for printing. You will leave the session with prints of your own work as well as the completed screen to continue printing at home. Liz will also focus on techniques and materials that will allow you to take your newfound skills into the home studio.

This event is open to anyone with a basic understanding of screen printing. If you did not attend our last class that is fine.
