With Dawn Beasley
Join territory artist Dawn Beasley for a workshop in silk screen printing.
In this workshop you’ll learn how to create multi-layered prints using a photographic silkscreen printing process combined with hand-cut stencils create your own pop art inspired artwork.
Silk screen printing is a printing technique that involves using a mesh screen to transfer ink onto a substrate, such as fabric or paper. The process involves creating a stencil on the screen, which is then placed on top of the substrate. Ink is then applied to the screen and pushed through the mesh using a squeegee. The ink passes through the open areas of the stencil and onto the substrate, creating the desired image or pattern. Silk screen printing can be used to print on a variety of materials, including textiles, ceramics, and paper products. It is commonly used in the production of T-shirts, posters, and other promotional materials.
In this course you will have the opportunity to print on paper and fabric (a tote bag) with the added option to print on a collaged surface and/or to bring in your own plain t-shirts, tea towels etc to add to the substrates provided.
This workshop will run over two days and is suitable for beginners or those with some experience.
What you should bring:
- You’ll need to wear closed in shoes. Bring an apron and/or wear ‘studio’ clothes.
- Your camera phone to create a suitable image for printing (a self-portrait – we will help each other take some awesome shots!)
- Bring snacks/lunch (tea, instant coffee and milk will be provided)
