ART113: Silkscreen Printing Basics SBU
Class Number 66-117599

In this hands-on class, learn the basics of silkscreen printing. TechShop makes it easy by using vinyl stencils rather than photo-emulsion. Prepare a vinyl stencil, transfer onto a screen, apply ink to fabric through screen, and then heat set the ink. It’s that simple. You will learn the proper technique of applying Ink through a silkscreen while troubleshooting common mistakes so you can create your own custom products.

Want to print a t-shirt using your own artwork? Bring a simple black and white drawing that will be cut by hand.

Participants who have passed the Vinyl Cutter Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class may bring in a pre-cut design to use. Otherwise, choose from several designs provided. Get ready to start making custom silkscreened t-shirts!
