Duke Create | Intro to Screen Printing
We'll cover the basics of screen printing: the necessary equipment and how it's used, coating and "burning" a screen, the mechanics of pulling a print, and a few best-practice tips and tricks. During the workshop, participants will have ample opportunity to "get their hands dirty (inky)" practicing printing technique; and everyone will walk away with a 2-color DukeCreate poster that they've printed themselves.
