Screenprinting is an effective technique for creating bold canvases, posters and artwork, but the method can also be used to print fabrics and textiles, so it’s great for creating all sorts of custom clothing and products.

In this workshop, you will learn the basic techniques of screenprinting and you will come away with a cool new tote bag in the process! This quick course will cover the entire process from making your design, making it work for a print, putting it on the screen, and finally the act of printing itself. You’ll come away with new skills and ideas on how to use it more in your life beyond this course.
