Polychromatic Screen Printing Workshop by Lizz Aston

We are hosting a new and exciting silkscreening workshop. One that allows for flexibility, a multitude of colours and a Sunday morning full of creative adventures!

Polychromatic screen printing combines both silkscreening and painting techniques to produce watercolour-like images on paper and cloth. By painting directly onto open mesh or exposed silk screens, polychromatic allows you to print multiple colours using a one-step process.

In this workshop students will learn to shoot images to screen and use the polychromatic process to create a series of one-off hand printed, silkscreen cards.
Sunday, October 16th at 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
$100 early bird registration (expires Sep 30)
