Silkscreen printmaking produces really clean, punchy images with a strong graphic quality that understandably appeals to a huge range of people who enjoy graphic design, typography, photography, printmaking and design. With silkscreen, details stay crisp and sharp while colour pops off the page.
In brief, the process itself involves transferring an image to a mesh screen. The treated image blocks out the negative space so that when ink is firmly pressed through the screen using a squeegee, only the desired areas are printed onto the paper/fabric.
LP’s eight week course will bring you through the entire process under the guidance of LP’s hugely experienced silkscreen artist and tutor Derek O’ Sullivan. The weekly classes allow students to develop their work and ideas as they learn, and to make multiple prints throughout the duration of the course. Each participant will try each step in the process multiple times, ensuring greater retention of what has been learned.
