ABOUT THIS CLASS
This class will address photo silkscreen printing processes using light sensitive emulsion. Simply stated, photo silkscreen printing involves use of a stretched screen. The screen acts almost as a negative. Ink is pushed through the screen to produce a positive image. Images and marks made on a clear substrate, such as acetate, can be used to create a screen. For those with photoshop or graphic computer skills, a film positive can also be used to create a screen. We will cover basic information for people who are new to the process, but the class will also be a great venue for more advanced printing, including photographic imagery for those working in or wanting to learn about that technique. The class will address each participant at their own comfort level. Nothing is too simple, or too complicated.
