Project Description

Learn how to create, prepare and print your very own t-shirt design using screen printing!

In this class, you will learn; the basics of creating a t-shirt design, making your own screen, preparing to print, and the entire printing process. We will go over all of the materials needed for a basic one color screen print. I will share examples and helpful hints along the way to make your first time screen printing as painless as possible. By the end of the class you will have created your very own custom designed screen, along with printed t-shirts made from your new screen.

The final deliverable for this class will be a photo of you modeling your self created, screen printed t-shirt. Extra credit if you send me a shirt!
