The Art of Screenprinting
Short Courses at AUB
design, art, artwork
Through learning how to break down images into separations and the techniques of combining stencils and overlaying imagery, you will be able to produce stunning multi-coloured designs and finished pieces of artwork.
This course is ideal if you are planning a career as a print technician, studio helper, workshop assistant, or as an artist and designer or just a complete beginner that wishes to try screenprinting for the first time.
With expert guidance from your tutor Demeter Dykes this hands-on course will introduce you to all the equipment and a wide range of screenprinting techniques using water based screen-printing processes.
You will be one of only 10 students, so you will have maximum individual attention from your tutor. You will use photographic stencil emulsions to make screens from photographic, digital or hand-drawn sources.
You will use methods of working directly on the screen mesh, therefore allowing experimental print work to be carried out for use with fabrics and paper.
What you need to bring
A1 or A2 smooth Cartridge paper (150 – 300gsm), apron or overalls, a small selection of Daler Rowney System acrylic paints, a roll of masking tape, scalpel, a small brush, latex gloves, basic drawing materials, eraser, sharpener (see appendix for suppliers). A sketchbook or selection of images that you would like to use.
