Online Creative Silkscreen Workshop teaches you all the basics of photo emulsion screenprinting , where you do the entire process along with me step by step. Questions along the way are encouraged !

You will learn different ways to create artwork suitable for screenprinting and the simple art supplies needed. You will then make your own unique artwork, and email it to me to put on a silkscreen. I will show making some of these screens live, during our workshops. Your silkscreen will then be sent to you (or you can pick up) in a kit with all the basic supplies you need to start screenprinting at home. Next, you will learn to screenprint your own artwork with a silkscreen made for you and more.

We will all discuss the art we created, and how we can continue the art of silkscreening into the future. I make this amazing artform easy, inexpensive and fun.

Your silkscreen kit will include - your custom silkscreen with your own art, a drop cloth, 5 textile inks- black, red, blue, yellow and white, a paint scraper to print with and a tote bag to print.

Materials: material kits will be mailed out by the instructor.
