This is a hands-on workshop for novice screen printers. Learn the basics of screen printing on all media and the complete screen printing process from artwork preparation to image burning to ink application. Make your own DIY notecards, business cards, or even a handy tote bag! After two Saturdays, you’ll be equipped with the savvy to screen print future projects on your own. Screen printing has been a tool for social and political change, and was one of the earliest classes offered by KSW. Workshop instructor Scott Louie will give you the historical context to appreciate this art form.
