Screen printing is one of the most modern and long-history print making methods, which creates an image by hand pressing ink through a screen. The technique is used for both making fine art prints and commercial applications.
With self-invented portable exposure and printing kit, IdleBeats live workshop can take attendees with zero silkscreen experience through the whole printing process within 3 hours. From drawing artwork, exposing screens, pre-printing set-up till printing their own image on shirts, bags and posters!
<Schedule & Curriculum>
create a silkscreen-friendly artwork on an A4 transparent film by painting with black marker and piecing together IdleBeats’ illustration elements.
Place the prepared film on top of a screen that’s coated with light-sensitive emulsion, put both in exposure kit to exposure.
Wash the exposed screen with water gun and cleanser, keep washing until the image area on the film fully appears.
Set up the screen on printing base, mix color and start printing. One screen can be applied to different materials: art paper, tote bag or T-shirts. Place the paper or bags on drying rack after printing, it only takes few minutes to dry. The eco-friendly ink will stay on paper or fabric after drying and won’t be washed off afterwards.
