Screen Printing 102: Printing with Dyes

In this class, students will learn how to print with dyes on fabric, instead of inks. Using dye printing pastes instead of inks allows for vibrant and transparent colors, without the "sit-on-top" effect that happens when printing with ink. Students will learn about different dyes available for fabric, different thickeners, how to prepare the dye print paste, how to print with it on fabric and the different ways to set it.

Screen Printing with Stencils

Screen-printing is a super fun way of getting a design printed and re-printed into anything you may want -- t-shirts, tote-bags, fabric, etc. While traditional screen-printing normally requires an exposure unit and photo-sensitive emulsion, screen-printing with stencils is the perfect do-it-at-home option. In this workshop, students will learn the basics of screen printing with stencils: how to make a stencil and how to print their own designs using textile inks.
