What's Included

Make your gifts unique! In this short, fun class, we will refresh all of the basics of silkscreen printing from start to finish. Initially using drawings, paintings, and collages, students will learn how to turn their images into simple repeating patterns entirely by hand. Then we will create screens and learn now to print them using different methods of registration onto wrapping paper. Students will leave with their own small roll of handmade paper and with a basic understanding of the complex process of repeat silk screen printing. Some Photoshop and squeegee experience is helpful but not necessary. Saturday Dec 3 from 10am-4pm $20 Materials Fee payable to the teacher on the first day of class Instructor bio: Emily Gui is an experimental printmaker and multi-media artist.

She is the co-creator of CAMP (Collaborative Arts Mobility Project) Residency, a new, annual gathering that brings together artists across disciplines in new locations. In 2015 she was selected by the Print Club of New York to exhibit and speak at their annual Print Exhibition.
