Screen printing is a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of polyester or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is forced into the mesh openings by the fill blade or squeegee and by wetting the substrate, transferred onto the printing surface during the squeegee stroke. As the screen rebounds away from the substrate the ink remains on the substrate. It is also known as silk-screen,screen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design. Andy Warhol, Rob Ryan, Blexbolex, Arthur Okamura, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Harry Gottlieb, and many other artists have used screen printing as an expression of creativity and artistic vision.
Ready-made designs are implemented using templates made photomechanicaly and the actual color registration on the graphic sheet A2.
Requirements for participation in the workshop serigraph: It is necessary that the participants of the symposium will send designs in pdf format via email (email@example.com) at least 2 weeks in advance.
Design requirements: graphic sheet A2 , maximum 3 spot colors (no gradients , preferably drawing- pen) , the best solution is a design without too much fine detail.
