Description - Screenprinting is a method of stenciling that allows for complicated designs to be printed on virtually any surface. This course will cover several methods of making stencils, using multiple colours and colour separation, and home printing on textiles. Participants will be provided with screens and squeegees to use during the course, as well as inks, emulsions, paper and some textiles.
What to bring - a sketchbook, pencil and images that you're interested in working with in digital format (jpeg). Please wear suitable clothing and footwear; you'll be on your feet all day, working with ink and also using a pressure washer. An apron and waterproof footwear is recommended. Those interested in primarily printing on textiles are encouraged to bring their own fabrics, garments or linens.
Instructor - Edith Krause is a printmaker living in Langley, BC. She holds an MFA from the University of Alberta and a Masters of Science in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. Her interest in biology has been a major influence on the subject matter of her artwork and her current art practice consists of an inter-disciplinary exploration of ecosystems, employing scientific methodology to collect images and data, and art to express her findings. Please email Edith with any questions.
