In this 5-session series you’ll learn all the basics of screenprinting, and then expand to large repeating patterns. No experience with screenprinting is necessary in order to be successful in this course, we start from the ground up. Image prep, screen prep, printing, and cleaning are all covered on day 1 and after that we apply those skills to repeating patterns: how to create a pattern using digital and analog methods and how to print that pattern onto a flat surface, designing your own textiles, wallpaper, wrapping paper, upholstery, tapestries, curtains, and much more. This challenging but fun buddy-printing technique builds on the principles learned in Intro to Screenprinting. The final session for this series will include a critique of each students’ two designs on paper and fabric.
