Introduction to Screen Printing

with Ben Etten and Michelle Lee Lagerroos
Thursdays: January 11, 18, 25, February 1; 6–9pm CT

Get familiar with MCBA’s screen printing studio and practice the photo emulsion process, from positive creation and screen coating to exposure and reclaiming. Each participant will complete an edition of multi-layered screen prints and come away from the workshop with the confidence to work independently at MCBA’s Screen Print Labs.

Create your design positives using hand-drawn artwork and/or cut paper stencils. Bring your sketches and ideas to the workshop. Final designs should fit on a letter-sized sheet of paper (maximum width 8.5 inches) and may include up to two colors.

This section of Introduction to Screen Printing is three-hours longer than previous offerings of this workshop. This change is made in response to requests for more guided practice from previous participants.

All skill levels welcome
