Textile and fashion lovers, love this class!
2 days class time, plus half day studio pass
You'll be introduced to the materials, shown different methods of printing, and become more comfortable with the process. We'll learn how to measure and register to print repeat patterns on fabric yardage for a seamless look.
Each student will create a repeat with their own one color artwork and transfer it onto a silkscreen.
Come prepared with your artwork ideas the first day. The screens will hold an image/repeat of 18"x29." If you want a hand drawn look, bring your sketch, and if graphically inclined, send your images to karin "at" betterthanjamnyc "dot" com. Your image MUST be in GRAYSCALE AND high resolution.
You will be provided 2 yards of fabric for your final print, but bring your own if you have a look/color choice in mind. (Make sure to prewash your fabric and iron beforehand.) Students will be given about an hour of "free print" time during the second day. However you may also return for a FREE STUDIO DAY. Reserve a time up to two months after your class to come print more with your screen.
You will not be able to keep your silkscreen, but we'll save it for you to use for two months.
