Printmaking workshop with Orange_ade from DAS
An introduction into the screen-printing process; over one weekend you will be taught how to physically print your own design from scratch. Participants will be guided through the different stages of the screen-printing process from design through to a finished product.
The weekend will begin with an introduction to screen print examples following which you will be taught how to print a two-colour image.
Participants will explore ideas and concepts through sketching prior to making separations for each of the two colours.
You will be taught the process involved and will learn how to expose your own screen.
During the two-day workshop you will spend time printing, enabling you to develop the skills learnt.
Additionally, you will create your own small edition of two- colour screen prints onto A5 sized paper.
