About the course
The two day beginners course offers the chance to develop a working understanding
of screen print. The first day is similar to the One Day Beginners course.
Students learn the process from start to finish on Day 1, and then consolidate their
knowledge on the second day, this timenworking on a more complex three colour print.
A week in between the two sessions means there is time to prepare artwork for the second session, now in a more informed way.
You will learn how to: coat the screen with the liquid stencil; produce artwork for putting onto the screen; transfer artwork onto the screen using the exposure and washout units; Correct mixing of ink and medium, instruction into building the image through layers within the screen print process.
The days provide participants with a solid introduction to screen printing and an opportunity to come away with two different sets of prints of their own design. The course includes cartridge paper and newsprint, two large sheets of Fabriano paper (see below), inks, drawing materials, screen exposure. On Sunday a simple lunch (vegetarian) will be provided. For Saturday, participants are recommended to sample the great range of food at St Nicks Market. Fresh coffee, tea and biscuits are included.
What’s not included
We keep a stock of Fabriano heavyweight paper which comes in 70 x 50 cm sheets. Two sheets of this paper is included in the price, this can be cut into two or four depending on the size of your print. Additional sheets are available and at the cost of 50p per quarter sheet.
