In this introduction to screen printing you will learn how to take your design or drawing from an idea to a reproducible print. Participants will learn to use the exposure unit, washout station, t-shirt press, and flash unit in this workshop. We will cover the 'House Rules' for the screen print lab and go over procedures for using the space and tools effectively in order to complete projects.
Teacher: Mel Williams
I’m a teaching artist in fashion, fiber arts, printmedia, 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.
