T-SHIRT PRINTING 101 is a basic introduction to silk screen printing on to textile (fabric) with a one color design. You will practice printing your design on various fabrics to get acquainted with the process on different surfaces.
Our goal is to provide you with a brief, but thorough understanding of the screen printing process. We wanted to offer this class to those interested in the silk screen process and to give you the confidence to start making t-shirts and posters on your own- for fun or profit!
Ink, mesh count, preparing screens, and printing will be explained and demonstrated, with hands on practice at the end of class. The session will focus on different techniques of screen and art preparation. Printing will be done with water-based ink on t-shirts and paper.
