Screenprinting for Home (four-session workshop)

This four session workshop is designed to demystify the screen-printing process and help you learn how to set up and print in your own home studio. You will learn low-tech nontoxic techniques using accessible water-soluble materials such as drawing fluid, screen filler, graphite and Caran d’Ache. We will also cover how to set up and clean up at home.
