Learn to silkscreen with an actual art school grad!!!
In this 5 hour hands-on comprehensive, visiting artstar and good Mada friend Ben Mortimer will show you how to burn your own silkscreen with equipment you can put together at home.
We will supply the screens, Ben will pre-emusion your screens for you, then demonstrate how to do it, then show you how to burn your screen with our light boxes. Then you all will burn your own artwork to your screen.
After your screens are cleaned off and dry, you'll have the chance to print onto fabric, paper, t-shirts or whatever you want, then go home with your own screen.
No experience neccessary.
Bring artwork printed onto a clear transparency. If you don't have an artistic bone in your body, find an image online. If that's not your thing either, you can just use something we have. If none of this makes sense to you, shoot me an email and I'll help you out. You need to make sure the image is dark enough to keep light from penetrating. Or print doubles, or you can darken it up with a black sharpie.
We have fabric and paper you can use for practice, but if you want something specific, bring your own. Keep in mind there's a high F-up to good ratio in the beginning so don't bring your best old favorite irreplacacle t-shirt.
Sat. Nov. 23, noon to 5.
$80, go home with a working silkscreen.
