Spring Workshop Series at the Sou’wester
DIY Screen Printing & Contact Paper Stencils
with Heather McLaughlin
Using tape and contact paper artists can create temporary screen printing stencils. This is a great way to make screen at home with little to no chemicals or equipment. In this workshop artists will create successful designs to cut, create the contact paper stencils by hand and pull a small set of prints. In addition to prints on paper, artists can also print on fabric or other flat materials.
