Screenprinting on Fabric
This class will introduce multiple techniques for screen printing onto fabric. Beginning with basic stencil printing, students will establish printing skills and terminology. From there, students will learn to create both hand drawn and photographic images. Through weekly demonstrations, students will be exposed to ink mixing, color and pattern relationships, repeat pattern making and printing, approaches to developing imagery, multiple color registration, and discharge printing. The class will culminate with each student choosing an independent project, which can range from developing a line of shirts, creating merchandise for a band, or printing yardage for sewing projects.
