EXPERIMENTAL SCREEN PRINTING with Jette Clover
This workshop introduces fun and non-toxic printmaking methods, which can be used on both paper and fabric
We will explore the possibilities of various printing techniques such as mono printing, stencil printing, screening, rust – and flour printing and discharge. We will experiment with a variety of resists including paper, plastic, textile, string, wax, flour, acrylic gel medium, etc. We will construct our own screens and further use gelatin as a base for making a printing plate and our hands as a press
