Silkscreening Digital Class
This listing is for video-only access to Jen Hewett’s Silkscreen Workshop. Please note that materials are not included but materials kits and the FULL workshop (video + curated materials) can be found in Marketplace.
In this workshop we are exploring screen printing. This workshop is led by artist Jen Hewett, a printmaker, surface designer, textile artist and teacher who shares with us a hands-on overview of beginning print screening for those interested in creating their own custom textiles. Having carefully curated the tools and materials needed to dive in, Jen offers step-by-step directions to design one’s own template and to transfer that design to fabric using a screen printing frame. What is screen printing? Screen printing is a printing technique using mesh (held in place by a wooden frame) to transfer ink onto a textile one color at a time. This method is also known as silkscreen because traditionally silk was used in the place of today’s synthetic threads (which make up the mesh). The method that Jen covers allows one to use the same mesh again and again with brand new designs and colors – it’s a wonderful technique to explore!
