Single-Color Screen Printing: One Day Introduction FEBRUARY
Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Somerville, United States
Ever wanted to make your own custom t-shirt, tote bag, sticker, poster, or greeting card? The Asylum has a space and classes for you! In this one day intensive introduction to screen printing, you'll learn all the basics and by the end of the day create a screen using your artwork and print a one-color design on your choice of t-shirts or paper.
Students will learn all they need to start screen printing at home or in the Asylum's print studio. After an informational overview, students will dive right in to hands-on work so that by the end of the workshop they leave with their own printed products as well as the skills to print on their own.
Students should be prepared with designs/artwork you'd like to print to send in pdf form to the instructor. No previous screen printing experience required.
Students should bring their own materials to print on for their final project -- t-shirt, tote bag, paper, etc. -- and a $10 materials fee, payable to the instructor, to cover consumables. The instructor will provide materials for test prints and screens and ink, though students have the option of bringing their own.

This one-day session will run Saturday, February 9, from 11AM to 5PM.
