What's Included

Learn how to design and print repeating patterns and simple tessellations on fabric or paper. This class will (get rid of teach) refresh all of the basics of silkscreen printing with an emphasis on textile printing and registration. With an emphasis on design, students will learn how to create patterns both by hand and digitally from their own drawings. Then students will be encouraged to develop their own small scale projects and bring in fabric, clothing, tea towels, wrapping paper or anything else that they want to print patterns on. Although projects will be smaller in scale, students will leave with an understanding of the process that can translate to a larger scale. Some basic squeegee experience is helpful for this course, as it will introduce students to new silkscreen printing concepts. Thursdays, Sept 15, 22, 29, Oct 6 from 6:30-9:30pm $25 Materials Fee payable to the teacher on the first day of class Instructor bio: Emily Gui is an experimental printmaker and multi-media artist.
