Class Fee: $180 + tax
Instructor: Pete McCracken / Owner, Crack Press and Portland Type®, Portland Oregon
Ever wanted to print your own tee-shirts? Stickers? Tote bags?
In this one day workshop we focus on the processes for textile and vinyl printing. We will review different materials, inks and print methods for non-paper printing. Pre-processed screens with images will be available for use. Participants are also welcome to bring stencils to process their own screens for print (imagery size is limited to 9” x 9”)
Since we will spend the day concentrating on the specifics of how to print different substrates there will be less workshop time for artwork development and processing screens. To take full advantage of the material covered we recommend a working knowledge of the screen print processes and the Remarque studio facility.
Workshop will cover:
• Printing with plastisols, staying clean, clean up
• Tee shirt press method
• Different inks and discharge printing
• Registration on textile
• Repeating pattern textile print
• Setting up and printing tee-shirts, apparel, stickers
Screenprinted posters and books will be available for review. A share back discussion will happen at the end to chat about the work created, experiences and address questions.
