Wearable Prints: Screenprint Your Own… (Oct 2015)
Convert your own drawing or design to a collection of hand-printed wearable items in this energetic and informative one-day workshop. Printing small runs of t-shirts, totebags, and the like is practical, gratifying and not to mention fun!
Arriving with a simple black and white drawing, a high-contrast photo, or art designed in Illustrator or Photoshop, students will have time on site to refine the artwork as needed to be best suited for screenprinting. Each student will get to use a screen that has been pre-coated with a photographic emulsion and mix their own custom ink color. Bring five items of your choosing to print. As long as they are fabric and flat, we will help you print on it! T-shirts are fantastic, as are tote bags, tea towels, bandanas, and thrift store jean jackets. Leave with a sample for an Etsy store, a surprise gift for a friend, or an eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags!
