Gain new screen printing skills and try out CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) layer separation in screen printing with artist Graeme Dearden. During this online demonstration you will be shown how to prepare images for colour separation printing, see how to mix CMYK inks, expose halftone images, and the steps involved with printing a four-layer image in Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black process inks. This informative online demonstration will give you the know-how and skills to later try CMYK techniques yourself and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about your own ideas and images. This one evening session will allow you to explore the possibilities of CMYK and give a good introduction to the process for further exploration at home or through booking a one-to-one in person session.
