Impression: Screen Printing

Today we had a refresher course on how to screenprint in order to print next week.

  • Clean the screen of the last person’s work and the emulsion.
  • Leave to dry in dark room.
  • Pull emulsion across the screen ready for your image.
  • Leave to dry in dark room.
  • Place your image and screen on the UV bed to transfer image onto the screen.
  • Rinse off in the wet room to ensure ink can get through the image.
  • Leave to dry in dark room.
  • Once ready to print the printing bed needs to be set up
  • Line of ink placed at one end of screen.
  • Use squeegee to draw ink across screen, pressing firmly.
  • Carefully lift screen
  • Evaluate and repeat

After this refresh I’m really excited to get printing next week because since last year I have been introduced to People of Print and Print Club London so I feel pretty inspired to use the printing method.
