I'll be instructing the courses with the help of the people who run the two shops we will be working in. Please contact them to register. This is geared at people who have no experience screenprinting but want to learn solid fundamentals, or those with some experience who want to upgrade their skills using photoemulsion. Past workshops have included university print lab techs; woodworkers who wanted to print wood products; dyeists and costume designers from the Stratford Festival, native carvers and artists, antique gas pump restorer who now makes his own replica glass globes, silk artists, t-shirt company start-ups, and lots more. Screenprinting is FOR EVERYBODY. We will cover a lot of ground in the two days, but due to small enrollment (8-10 people) you will get lots of chance to learn the steps and practice them so you can start printing on your own.
Hey, it will be a lot of fun too!
