What's Included

Learn how to design and print repeating patterns and simple tessellations on fabric or paper. This level 2 class will refresh all of the basics of silkscreen printing with an emphasis on textile printing and registration. Begninning with pattern 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, paper or anything else that they want to print patterns on. Due to space, projects will be smaller in scale, however 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. Wednesdays.
