Print Edition is here to teach waterbased printing to artists and designers of all kinds. We want you to understand the art of translation of your piece into a piece that can be multiplied and made into a commercial but still authentic artist created hand made art.
We’ve taught our ‘Start-Up (Bootcamp) to hundreds of people and our Beginners design and software class, multi colour illustration to print and our yardage specialty class on average twice a year. There’s only really 3 or 4 of us here so we develop classes as we go due to demand.
Keep an eye out – we have alot to do with our latest exhibitions coming up but are working slowly on them all.
Our main idea is we want to get people going through the Start-Up Class so everyone has real references from which to learn more.
THE CLASS CONSISTS OF –
1* Graphics discussion – types of graphic creation
2* Graphic output – translating images to screenprint
3* Film output – RIP programs – types of films
4* Screen selection – inks characteristics / substrate characteristics
5* Coating a screen with Photographic Emulsion – also stripping of a screen of it’s original emulsion
6* Screen exposure – putting your image from your film onto the screen – including sun & lamop exposures – theory of multi-colour registration.
7* Screen preparation – Spotting (Time permitting) taping – what to look for – preppping your screen.
8* Inks – Colours and t-shirt or paper selection
9* Apparatus selection – Choosing the best machine / rig to deliver practical application for you after class.
10* Registration – bringing it all together – the relationship between rig, plattern, T-shirt (or poster or whatever)
