Screen Printing image

Screen Printing or Serigraphy is a popular and commercial form of stencil printmaking. By forcing ink through a screen mesh using a squeegee, it is used commonly to decorate textile materials including clothing or to produce fine art prints and posters on paper. The Screen Printing induction will introduce you to the workshops, equipment and facilities used to create screen prints. We will cover all procedures included in the SWPs: cleaning a screen, making a screen, and printing an image. The induction will grant you access to the Screen Printing workshops. You will be instructed on how to safely clean and prepare a screen using ultraviolet sensitive photo emulsion. Please wear enclosed shoes to the induction.
