Ever wanted to make your own custom t-shirt, tote bag, sticker, poster, or greeting card? 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 must be at least 18 years of age.
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.
Erik Heumiller is a video editor, cartoonist and printmaker. His print experience comes from his years working in a T-shirt shop. He's currently hard at work fulfilling orders for his successful Kickstarter project the Magnet Comic, but he still likes to squeeze in some print time whenever he's got a spare moment.
This one-day session will run twice in November, on Saturday, November 9, and Saturday, November 16, 11am-4PM.
