A three-day workshop exploring the craft of screen printing, with professional printmakers in a studio setting.
Gain insight into the science, best practices, and crucial small details that will help to make huge differences to your finished printing work.

About

This is a complete and comprehensive workshop, where you will have the opportunity to learn the trade of screenprinting from professional printers in a dynamic environment.  

The workshop groups will remain small in size (maximum 6 per course), which will allow each participant to obtain more personalised instruction from the teacher, and the best practical experience working with the printing press and other tools.

You will learn how to properly design and set up images and output files for films, discover the science behind photo-sensitive emulsion, learn how to properly coat and burn an image into a screen and learn the best practices and master fine details to get the most accurate and best quality prints.

The first class will take place at ESDIP's headquarters in Berlin (which doubles as a coworking space and an art school). The second and third classes will take place at a professional screen printing studio (Wedding).

At the end of this workshop you will leave with a sample poster printed with your own design!

WHEN

16th, 17th, and 18th March 2020
