with Roni Henning
6 weeks, Tuesdays 6 – 9 pm

Explore the wide range of possibilities in this versatile medium. Screenprinting allows you to easily print hand-drawn, photographic, and digital imagery on paper, fabric, and other surfaces in endless variety of colors. We will create handmade and photographic matrices and learn to use an exposure unit to make screens, and a vacuum press to print them. Topics will include screen preparation, color separation for multi-screen prints, correct color mixing, registration, screen monoprinting, editioning, and basic methods of printing onto t-shirts and other garments.
Roni Henning is the director and master printer of Henning Screenprint Workshop, NY, and is the author of two books on waterbased screenprinting. She has taught printmaking at New York Institute of Technology, and workshops at Rutgers University, Parsons School of Design, and many other universities and institutes throughout the country. ronihenning.com
