Screen Printing Information
Screen-printing is an exciting, colorful medium that allows you to easily create printed images of your artwork in multiples without using a printing press or needing an elaborate workshop or studio space. It is a versatile process that loves color and can produce vivid, sophisticated or subtle imagery by employing simple paper stencils and/or multiple techniques. For the artist, silkscreen printing offers endless possibilities in terms of color, design, pattern, line, shape, texture and layered imagery. For the textile artist, the resulting fabric may be used as an end in itself or a point of departure for further embellishment.

One day Workshop Synopsis:
Image Dreamings: Advanced Silk Screen Printing Workshop

This workshop was organized by Karen Tyler of the Redcliffe City Art Gallery, Queensland in conjunction with the exhibition, "Unleashed: The Rise of Australian Street Art".

The workshop was held at the Shillam Room, Cultural Centre, Redcliffe on the 10th April 2011. Jill Burgess, Di Flint, Helen Forrest, Jeannie Henry and Brenda Wood attended the workshop.

The one day workshop expanded on the techniques gleaned in the previous 'Image Dreamings: Basic Silk Screen Printing' workshop in August 2010. Participants learnt to use the silkscreen in an exciting non-traditional mode. Direct and indirect stencil techniques were explored using paper, wax, tape, talcum powder and other inexpensive and readily available improvisational media to create unique richly printed fabrics using fabric paints. Participants also employed the underlying principles of color theory and color mixing throughout the one-day program. Some prior experience using a silk screen was recommended for this class.
