      EXPOSURE SCREEN PRINTING -PAPER & FABRIC





      If you have never explored exposure screen printing, this is a great way to get you started and learn the basic principles, in a fun and experimental environment. This step-by-step workshop guides you through creating your own hand drawn design to exposing it onto a screen and printing onto samples of fabric and paper. 


      What is Exposure Screen Printing? 


      Exposure screen printing is a process that enables you to create a permanent stencil for your screen. Drawings, text, photos, mark making and many more design methods can be fixed into a screen, ready to be printed multiple times onto different surfaces. No need to cut a stencil.

      This immediate form of screen printing is great for anyone wanting to learn how to print t-shirts or homewares.

      • Prepare a positive (black and white) design in Photoshop and expose onto a screen
      • Mix a colour using System 3 acrylic ink
      • Expose screen
      • Prepare screen, register, apply ink and use a squeegee to screen print 6 x A4 prints onto paper
      • Experiment printing your design onto card, an A4 notebook and fabric sample


      At the end of the workshop you will have produced a small series of screen prints to take home and frame.
