“Saucy Screen Printing”
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Ages 8 – 16
August 8 – 12
A perfect all round introduction to screen printing workshop. Using simple and uncomplicated methods your child will learn how to print a design onto fabric like the professionals.
Campers will learn the ins and outs of screen-printing, and how to apply the technique to what they want to make. Each camper will develop their own unique idea of what to print and what to print on. First we will use ‘the old school’ way of printing so that they can use this method at home. Students will focus mainly on the photo-sensitive process of screen-printing. Utilizing the special facilities and materials supplied at by UND Department of Art and Design, the students will develop their drawings and designs onto light sensitive screens with the help of an exposure unit. After they’ve developed their screens, they will learn the proper printing techniques of screen-printing. And then it’s off to the races! And printing printing printing.
They can expect to come home with amazing prints. Awesome crazy colorful stationary and cards, as well as bright and bold t-shirts, flags, posters, you name it. For wearables, like t-shirts, they just have to bring that stuff in. They can bring in a few boring old white t-shirts they’ve had forever and go home with a brand new wardrobe. The best part is that they will be able to take what they’ve learned about screen-printing and show of their designs to the world!
