An Introduction to Screen Printing with Rob Toomer

Screen printing is a great process for printing all kinds of images onto a wide variety of materials, including paper, fabrics and even ceramics. There are many things that can be achieved with screen-printing that can’t be done with other printing processes and it has been a popular choice of medium for artists such as Andy Warhol. Taking a ‘DIY approach’ this course will introduce you to the basic process of screen printing and guide you through the steps of creating your own hand printed images; from designing images to be screen printed to preparing your screen and making your first prints. You will be introduced to some of the techniques you can use to create your stencils and we will also explore multiple colour printing. This course is suitable for those new to screen printing as well as those with previous experience of the process.
