Screen printing for beginners with Camilo Esparza

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

- $120

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

  • Limit: max 6 people (minimum 3 to run the workshop)
  • Suitable for beginners or more experienced printmakers, come and refresh your skills or fill your Professional Development for the 2018 with this great workshop.
  • Non-toxic, water-based materials used (all included).What to bring:
    • A couple of designs or ideas suitable for an area slightly smaller than an A4 size sheet (size of a standard photocopy paper). Remember we are going to use two or three colours printed in layers one on top of the other.
    • If you would like to experiment, bring additional printmaking paper or fabric materials (4 A3-sheets of Canson drawing paper 220gsm plus proofing paper will be provided).
    • Comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting stained.
    • Light lunch and drinks (there is a small oven, a microwave and a fridge at Bittondi).
