You will learn how to stretch and prepare a screen. The screen can be used to create interesting prints using paper stencils to create background prints that can be developed by overprinting. You will learn how to coat the screen using a photographic emulsion to make a permanent stencil. You can print onto paper or a cotton t-shirt. You will learn how to register the screens in order to overprint precisely. Throughout the course there will be opportunities for the group to look at work and examine ideas and techniques. Students will support and learn from each other in a relaxed and friendly workshop environment. Personal projects will be encouraged to develop ideas and to promote confidence and learning, with advice and guidance and one-to-one tutorials from the tutor.
