Three Part Project Class ( $75 for all three classes): In this workshop you will get step-by-step hands on instruction in screenprinting in order to complete your own project. You get your own screen to work with and we will cover coating the screen with emulsion, image design with and without computers, exposing and burning techniques, mixing your own inks, one and two colour printing on your choice of paper or fabric, and stripping the screen. This class is designed for people who have already taken the 2hour Intro to Screenprinting workshop with InkStorm or have some previous experience. The cost is $75 for all three classes and all screens, emulsion, and inks are included. The only thing you need to bring is fabric of paper for printing in the final class. Limit 5 per class.
