Screen Printing Basics & DIY Portable Print Studio

instructor: Chris Dacre

category: Printmaking, Myrtle Press

for: Adults

price: $85


Screen Printing can be done almost anywhere as long as you have a few key components. This class will walk you through the basics of screen printing; from printing and registration technique to taking out the mystery of getting an image onto the screen.

You will learn how to create your own portable home studio for very little cost and how to print multi-colored prints. This class will provide you with the know-how and confidence you need to print t-shirts, posters and anything else you can think of on your own with just a little bit of practice and patience. After the demo there will be multiple screen-printing stations set up with a variety of imagery to choose from where you can print your own T-shirt (not supplied) or poster(s) on paper (supplied).

This class is for the beginner or as a refresher course for those who haven’t done it in awhile.
