Screen Printing

Art Workshop with Dena / Kiwi Print Studio

SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOP / This experimental screen printing workshop will cover a range of techniques using hand cut stencils, layering colours, collage and drawing. By the end of the session you will have created a small edition of silk screen printed pieces.

 

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed.

KIWI PRINT STUDIO / Founded by artist Dena O’Brien in 2012 Kiwi is a professional printmaking studio. Dena began her career in printmaking after studying a masters degree in Print at the Royal College of Art in London, where she found her passion for screen printing and all things print based.

Circle Contemporary and a small team of local artists work alongside Dena to help to provide a vibrant and welcoming printmaking workspace her in the gallery.

In addition to her classes Dena also offers technical services for all your printing needs. Open access sessions for those with a background in print, or screen exposure and technical advice for those wanting to work further in their own space.
