Basic Screen Printing Workshop (Sun, June 2nd 12-6pm)


(Saturday, May 25th 12-6pm)

Open to the public!  Interested in Screen Printing but don't know where to start? 

This is a quick basic primer for anyone wanting to get started in screen printing. Join us as we explore one of the most versatile print making methods at The Compound Gallery's Interdisciplinary Art Studio's Printmaking space. We will cover materials, application, preparation, and technique to get you printing. In this class, we will do a start to finish process of how to prepare and print a screen. There will be a short lunch break where you can bring your own lunch or pick up empanadas at Cafe Buenos Aires or Thai food at Summer Summer -both restaurants are only about a block away. You will not be working on your own designs/projects in this workshop. 

Class will run until about 5pm but please plan on staying the full time in case their are questions or you need extra time for printing.
