ADVENTURES IN SCREENPRINTING
Silkscreening seems mysterious and complicated, but it actually can be both simple and fun to make screens and print on fabric and paper. Students will learn to build their own screens and apply surfaces with paint, screen filler and photo emulsion, then use them to print custom images. Everyone leaves class with four screens to use and the skill to print successfully.

Six students, four 4-hour classes, $175 plus $20 supply fee.
Additional materials list.
This class meets at Stitch Lab.
