Course Outline

Screen printing is a wonderfully versatile medium. In the early stages you can quite quickly achieve a finished print but the process has boundless possibilities once you start printing. During this one year course you will have time to really extend your knowledge of the technicalities of the process, build and extend your skills, discover and develop a very personal response to the process. The course will appeal to creative thinkers and makers, those who have studied or hope to study a variety of arts, and anyone interested in illustration, graphic design and fine art.

Through studio and workshop projects, you will be introduced to a range of screen printing techniques through demonstration and set briefs. Students will learn how to develop ideas, drawings, digital and photographic imagery into screen printed designs.  This includes:

  • preparing, coating and exposing screens
  • using a vacuum bed in the studio (but also learning how to set up at home)
  • paper stencils
  • working on a small and large scale
  • colour mixing and registering layers
  • mark making directly onto the screen / exposed marks
  • blends
  • reversing stencils
  • bitmaps / duotone / 4 colour separation
  • experimenting with fluid and fillers

You will learn how to research and develop ideas and how to evaluate and reflect on your progress through individual discussion and group critiques.

This diagnostic approach will lead to students finding their own paths and following their own personal project ideas in the final term.

This course is suitable for beginners, refreshers and those who are more experienced*.

*For people who have some experience of screen printing and are keen to pursue their own projects, there will be an option for individual study and the freedom to pursue their own goals.  This will be achieved with support and guidance from the tutor.

The course will end with a group show in the studio open to family and friends.
