This one-day-workshop will provide you with the basic elements of photo-emulsion-screen-printing and will introduce you to an economic way of transferring your own designs using the emulsion premix, a transparency, a halogen lamp and some basic home items.
Each participant will transfer a design of their own to the emulsion coated screen using a transparency and a home-made exposure unit. Then, several prints will be made using different colours and surfaces. Each participant will walk away with at least four prints, and their design on the screen printing frame.
Cost: $140 for non-Bittondi members (this includes a 1-year associate membership for Bittondi Printmakers Association). $120 for Bittondi members.
