Screen-printing is a powerful tool for taking up space as marginalized peoples, for reclaiming our visual landscape from mainstream media and as a creative outlet for self-expression. This workshop will offer hands on learning in some basic screen-printing techniques such as working with stencils, screen filler and drawing fluid to produce radical and sassy prints that leave a mark! Participants will be supported to develop a critical concept, produce a visual graphic and print their final image onto poster boards. There will be a poster exchange so every participant gets a sample of each print produced in the workshop.
Printing materials available will include screens, squeegees, inks and some paper materials available for printing. Please feel free to bring other papers or fine fabrics to print on as well and come dressed for getting messy! Pre-registration is required – so sign up soon to get a spot!
