Learn the basics of silkscreening in this comprehensive, hands-on introductory class. Get comfortable with the Chases print shop and equipment. Prep your own artwork and screens, while gaining guided practice through mixing inks, burning emulsion, troubleshooting and experimenting. Students will leave this five-week intensive with their own one-of-a-kind works and two 15-print editions on paper.

Class one: Overview the full printing process. We will all print a pre-made screen and look at artwork or images you are thinking about using for the class. Everyone will coat a screen with photo sensitive emulsion for the next class.

Class two: Printing films, burning screens and preparing screens for printing. I would like students to have their images/designs ready for this class to print on 11x14” sheets of paper.  We’ll go over how to mix and use inks before we all get into printing one-color editions of 15. If time permits I will go over how to set up an image for a multi-colored print.

Class three: Demonstration of how to reclaim screens as well as registering using mylar for two-color prints. You will then go on your way start work on your two-color print.  

Class four: Work day: burning & printing your second edition.  Demo printing on found paper materials.

Class five: Final class: Coat, Burn, Print speed round on your found paper materials and trade prints with classmates!
