Ready to up your screen printing game? If you’ve already taken our introductory class, have some screen printing experience under your belt, or just feel like jumping right in, join us for Screen Printing: Beyond the Basics with Courtney McCracken!
Week 1: Students will be a refreshed on screen printing basics, and you will prep your screen as well as your design. You'll learn how to prepare an image for screen-printing, so come with some ideas of things you'd like to print.
Week 2: Students will burn your designs onto the screen and make prints on canvas tote bags and frame-worthy sheets of nice paper.
All materials are included: you don’t need to bring anything but yourself and an idea for a design. Students will leave class with two custom printed tote bags and an assortment of art prints, to keep or to share.
If you need assistance coming up with a design, no worries! We’ll help you make something great!
