Digital Screenprinting Summer School with Jule Mallett – Week 5 to 9 August

August 5 @ 10:00 - 15:00 BST

£270

This five day Summer School is designed for those who wish to explore the use of digital images to make screenprints.

Jule Mallett will take you through the screen preparation processes and Thomas Compton will show you how to make ‘positives’ (images that can be exposed on a screen) using your digital images. These ‘positives’ will then be taken into the dark room and exposed on a silkscreen using photographic emulsion and our large format exposure unit.

Jule will also show you how to create and use paper stencils to print layers of colour underneath your digital image.

This course is suitable for beginners and refreshers alike. All basic materials are provided with the option of purchasing extra paper etc from the studio shop.

Dates: One week – 5 to 9 August
Times: 10am to 3pm
Cost: £270 / Members £260
