This introductory class will offer the opportunity to print a unique design. Starting with your own design, you will create a custom screen and print on provided tea towels, paper and textiles! This class will go over beginning silk screen techniques including photo emulsion exposure, printing, heat-setting, and proper clean-up.
Skill Level: Beginner! This is an introductory level silk screen class. No prior experience needed.
Age Level: 8+. Children between the ages of 8 - 14 will need to accompany and supervise the adults working with them on a silk screen project.
What to Bring: Bring a design to transfer onto the screen. You will be able to print with one color, so think of a simple design you can replicate.
There is a $15 material fee that includes 3 white cotton dish towels, ink and test paper. If you would like to print on other materials (shirts, bags, clothing), please make sure it is washed and solid knit or woven. Cotton t-shirts, denim, muslin, and canvas are all good options.
Instructor Bio: Emily Browne is an artist who has been silkscreening for over 10 years. She currently creates handmade textile items with silkscreen designs under the business name My First Birds.
