Screen Print: Techniques to Take Home

with Ben Etten and Michelle Lee Lagerroos
Saturday, April 15; 10am–4pm CT

Explore low-tech screen printing methods without a darkroom in MCBA’s screen printing studio! Instruction will cover screen printing basics, navigating inks, hand-cutting stencils, watercolor monotypes, registration, and printing effectively on paper. Repetition improves technique as you print a small edition of your unique, two-layer design! Bring your sketches and ideas to the workshop.

MCBA offers two scholarship types for workshops—Financial Hardship Scholarships and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Scholarships—to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom these scholarships do not apply, register at the “Adult” rate and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make scholarships available.

Masks are strongly recommended for program participants working close to others in MCBA’s studios. See our COVID Safety Guidelines for more information.
