Screenprinting With Halftones with Jule Mallett and Thomas WH Compton – Weekend 14/15 November
November 14 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM GMT£190
This is an exciting new course with OPS Textile and Screenprinting Tutor Jule Mallett and award winning illustration designer Thomas WH Compton.
The halftone process, found in printing, is a technique of breaking up an image into a series of dots to reproduce the full tonal range of a photograph or artwork. This weekend course is a basic introduction to screenprinting using imagery that is ‘halftone’ to showcase the variations you can achieve with this process.
A few days before the course runs, to maintain social distancing in the studio, those taking part will be asked to provide the artwork you wish to use. This could be a photograph of a drawing or artwork you have made or just a digital photo that you’d like to use. Tom will take this into Photoshop and break it down into various dot sizes and angles to make a halftone ‘positive’ which Jule will expose on a silkscreen. Your screen will be waiting for you on the first day of this weekend course. You will be shown how to print a ‘proof’ of your image and then the use of stencils to create layers of colour beneath your image.
Tom will provide full notes for creating a halftone ‘positive’ with the course and go through these with you to allow you to be able to prepare the artwork yourself in the future.
