In this second-tier screen printing workshop, you will learn how to effectively use water based inks for paper and textiles projects, and the pros and cons for using water-based ink over plastisol ink. Participants will review how to use the exposure until, washout station, and t-shirt press in this workshop, as well as techniques for table top and oversize printing. Participants will practice with designs provided by the instructor, then focus on developing and test printing their own designs using water-based inks.

Learning Outcome:

Participants will become comfortable using the exposure unit, washout station, t-short press, and table-top printing. Participants will learn to develop their screen printing designs beyond the usual confines of printing for t-shirts and apparel - breaking away from the constraints of production screen printing and discovering new possibilities within the medium.

Students must bring their own paper and/or fabric (yardage or garments) for printing.  Think about what project you'd like to work on ahead of time and bring that paper or fabric to this class.

Teacher: Mel Williams

I’m a teaching artist in fashion, fiber arts, print media, painting and drawing, and sustainability arts practice. As an educator, I focus on creative daily living practices for beginners and intermediate learners. My energy is focused on getting students to explore their world–the world of things and ideas. Students in my classes use critical thinking about how objects and ideas are formed. They are encouraged to respond by creating and discussing as individuals, and as a collective of artists and designers.

I have been a teacher, youth worker and arts educator working across diverse communities for over 20 years. My classroom is inclusive, inquisitive and focuses on developing healthy and safe classroom cultures where students’ voices are heard with respect and curiosity.
