OUR SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOPS

In the screen printing workshops, we provide a comprehensive learning experience of the printing process, from start to finish. We explore two methods: the use of photosensitive emulsion and stencil, focusing on two different substrates, paper and fabric, depending on the specific theme of each workshop.

FLASH SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOP

The Flash Screen Printing Workshop is an introductory workshop to screen printing. It allows you to learn all about the process, the necessary tools and the technique of printing on paper. In this workshop you will learn the main steps of the screen printing process, as well as carrying out a printing exercise.

In this workshop we will print a mini zine together, double-sided, using two types of printing, with a stencil and through screen exposure. You don't need to bring any drawings or materials, as we'll prepare a collective final artwork using drawing materials and collages.

You'll learn the process of screen printing, from preparing the matrix (stencil method and exposing the frame) to recovering the frame. Throughout the sessions you'll use screen printing frames with different sizes and threads (72F/90F) and understand the type of application that corresponds to each one. We'll explain the types of paper to print on, as well as the appropriate inks. At FICA we use water-based paper inks suitable for screen printing.

Fabric Screen Printing Workshop

Screen printing is one of the most widely used techniques for printing fabric and allows you to effectively duplicate different types of artwork. In the Screen Printing on Fabric Workshops, using more specific tools such as the printing carousel (for perfect registrations or pieces already sewn) or preparing the set for a meter print, we'll share everything you need to know about the technique, from start to finish. From inks to screens, emulsion to photolithographs, as well as types of fabric.

In the Screen Printing on Fabric Workshop we will print a meter of fabric together using the screen exposure method. And print individual pieces of fabric using the original stencil method. Pre-prepared shapes and cut-outs will be used, so you don't need to bring any drawings or ideas.
