This course will introduce the students to the history of screen-printing through a selection of archival screen-prints. Students will be introduced through talks and demonstrations to the various techniques needed to prepare prints. The course will allow you to build upon your skills and develop your confidence through a project-based six week programme, this will cover advanced techniques including colour blending, working with direct stencil-based imaging, such as manual drawn stencil, hand painted and paper stencils. Learn more in-depth knowledge about how to use specialist screen-printing materials, and master multi-layered printing, editioning, print finishing, screen reclamation, the idea and use of multiples, and the signing and tearing down of prints.
