We still have a few openings in our 2 day Intro to Screenprinting courses running at Squeegeeville studio on Vancouver island in BC Canada.
Dates are 21 and 22 in apr, May 12 and 13.
there are more dates (one weekend per month) running into the fall for those who can't make the spring ones.
A small class (max 4 people) means lots of handson work as you learn about art and film prep, screens and meshes, coating and exposing techniques, reclaiming, inks and additives, make ready, and press operation. We will also do an overview of the process, history, and its applications.
We will spend time on student's particular area of interest (textiles, graphics,art prints, specialty apps) and students also receive a copy of 'Screenprinting Today - the Basics' which includes simple plans and instructions for a vacuum table, 1 colour t-shirt press, and how to make simple exposures at home.
For more info or to book the course, look under Training and Workshops on the website www.squeegeeville.com
This course is good for beginners, intermediate printers, or teachers who want a tune up of their techniques. Lunch is included, and we encourage visitors to the area to stay for a bit and enjoy our remarkable area of the world - Vancouver Island (google Comox Valley)
