Suitable for beginners. This course will provide an extensive introduction to screen printing processes. You will learn a method that is known as the photo emulsion technique: how to produce screenprints from any black-and-white photographic or hand drawn imagery, which is then exposed onto the emulsion-coated screen with ultraviolet light. You will learn and have time to practice the processes of coating, exposing, printing and editioning your artwork. Colour layering and registration will also be covered.
What is screen printing?

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a wovenmesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials, which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.Screen printing is also a stencil method of printmaking in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through the mesh onto the printing surface.
