A Taste of Silkscreen - 1 day Intro Course
Level: Complete Beginners to Improvers & Refreshers

Silkscreen printmaking is one of the most recognizable & popular forms of printmaking and lends itself really well to high volume production and both high contrast and layered multiple colour images. 
The process involves transferring an image to a mesh screen. The image blocks out the negative space so that when ink is firmly pressed through the screen using a squeegee, the desired areas are printed onto the paper/fabric.
LP’s introductory day course will bring you through the printing process under the guidance of LP’s silkscreen tutor Derek O’ Sullivan, enabling participants to produce one/two colour prints and to try the method without a huge initial outlay. 
This course will include:

• Studio health & safety/best practice
• Image selection and preparation/colour separation using software
• Screen: Mesh sizes, screen selection and care
• Process of transferring images to screen using photo sensitive emulsion and UV exposure unit
• Printing: Registration of image, ink & paper selection, printing technique, trouble shooting, creating multiple colour prints
