This one-day-workshop will provide you with the basic elements of screen printing and will introduce you to an economic way of setting up your own silk screen frame from scratch; something you can easily replicate at home using non-toxic materials.
Each participant will copy their own design to the screen using drawing fluid and screen filler. Then, three different layers of colour will be printed using a reduction technique. Each participant will walk away with at least four prints, and their design on the screen printing frame.
Cost: $120 for non Bittondi members (this includes a 1-year associate membership for Bittondi Printmakers Association), $100 for Bittondi members
