About the Class:

During this workshop participants will create multicolored images by putting a twist on traditional printmaking methods! Students will substitute printmaking ink for watercolor palettes mixed with transparent base. This process allows for a free-flowing playful environment which is great for beginners and experienced printers alike. If you've ever been interested in the process of screen printing but haven't had the time or materials to go for it, this workshop is for you.

All tools and materials are provided. Participants are also welcome to bring any fabric that they would like to print such as t-shirts, aprons, pillowcases, or tote bags. Attendees will leave with a basic knowledge of screen printing that can be recreated at home, and several of their own printed designs.
