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 geared towards both beginners without previous experience as well as people who have some basic knowledge about screenprinting.
