Screen Print: Photo Emulsion

with Ben Etten and Michelle Lee Lagerroos
Saturday, January 21; 10am–4pm CT

Get familiar with MCBA’s newly revamped 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. Some screen printing experience may be helpful, but is not necessary.

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.
