This is an introductory class to the process of screen printing. No previous experience is necessary as we will guide you through the entire process.

You will learn how to create film positives from art work that you have created in either Photoshop, illustrator or Corel Draw. Note it is beyond the scope of this class to cover the creation of artwork. The film positive is then exposed to a photo emulsion on a screen stretched to a frame. The image is processed to create a stencil of the artwork you created in reverse of the film positive. This class will teach you how to do spot colors limited to two colors. These can be letters and images but no gradients or halftones. We will teach this technique in a future class. We will teach you in this workshop how to set up our 6 color press, prepare your ink and print on either t-shirts or posters. You can cure and dry your prints and you will have a nice product you can take home and the experience on how to do it yourself.
