Curious about how to screen print? Want to screen print from the comfort of your own home? Or perhaps you wish to make the most of your printshop time when renting at SNAP and you would like to know how to prepare your ideas, inks, and stencils in advance? This unique course is perfect for just that! Artist Bernie Paetz has done the creative work of setting up her own screen printing space in her home during the pandemic and will share her steps and troubleshooting tips so you can screen print day and night when it best suits your lifestyle.

First you will receive three hours of online filmed content on November 12 covering two in-depth screen printing demonstration sessions and you will have two weeks to set up your own DIY screen printing area and try out the tips and techniques demonstrated. On November 26, everyone will take part in viewing a live online screen monotype demonstration that shows painting directly onto the screen to be further inspired by the possibilities of screen printing. Afterwards there will be a Q & A portion so all participants can discuss their DIY screen set up, share ideas, and have their questions answered by Bernie.

The first filmed demonstration session will cover how to set up a working screen print station at home by instructing and troubleshooting how to set up a screen table, attach hinges, space requirements, and washout solutions. The second filmed demonstration will go over DIY techniques for screen printing that do not use emulsion or an exposure unit. Learn techniques such as stenciling and using different materials to block out the screen like watercolour crayons, oil pastel, and speedball blockout. During this demonstration receive a virtual tour of SNAP Printshop and how you would set up and print using SNAP’s facilities. This course is perfect for everyone regardless of your screen printing experience!

*No experience is necessary, this class is recommended for beginner and intermediate artists. All ability levels are encouraged to register.
