Screen Printing is a weekly workshop for artists and those interested in learning screen printing techniques to print their original ideas onto paper and textile products.
Screen printing uses a fine mesh frame and stencil and ink is forced through to create a printed image. There are a variety of methods that can be used to make an image from creating a stencil and using a craft knife to cut it out, to hand painting an image directly onto the screen using a medium called Drawing Fluid. Artist’s are supported with the process of stencil production and design work, both set and independent design briefs are available depending on the needs of the individual. Screen printing also offers ‘taster’ projects in other areas of printmaking including linocuts for those with an interest in traditional printmaking.
The resulting screen printed products are then sold through the Arthur social enterprise range and will be available at the end of year SNAP Arts Festival read more about the Arthur range
Arthur also owns a laser cutter that connects to a computer and you can upload images to create stencils (coming in 2017).
Etching printmaking will be soon available in the screen printing studio as we have an operational printing press (coming in early 2017).
