Class Fee: $240 + tax
Instructor: Pete McCracken / Owner, Crack Press and Portland Type®, Portland Oregon
This introductory workshop teaches students the fundamentals of screen printing. Over the course of two days, we will cover the variety of uses for screen print, materials (ink, paper, process supplies), tools and the print process. The first day, students learn how to prepare and process screens using the Remarque studio facilities. We will discuss various screen print methods, how to plan a print project, and review printed matter. On day two, we work in the studio with the print work station and practice the print processes learned from day one. Each student will create a one color print using basic stencil methods and get hands-on experience printing their own screen. (If time allows, students will have the option to print a second color on their print.)
Participants will learn:
- Basic processes of screen printing
- Learn about different process supplies
- Coating, exposing and processing screens
- Different methods for creating imagery on screens
- Print a one color image from a pre-processed screen
Screen printed posters and books will be available for review. A brief talk of the history of screen print will be included during the workshop. A share back discussion will happen at the end to chat about the work created, experiences and address questions.
