A Hybrid (online and in-studio) Workshop!


Want to learn more about unique additive processes like flocking, gold leaf, and paper dying to add some extra flare to your screenprints? 


In this intermediate workshop, students will learn four unique additive and decorative processes: flocking, paper dying, gold leaf, and puff paint. Students can use these materials/processes to embellish and add a stylistic flare to their screenprint projects. The first session will be a virtual demonstration of how to apply each method to their prints. In the next session, students split into smaller group sessions to make their prints and apply any of the additive methods.


Level: Intermediate - the class is recommended for students with prior screenprinting experience. 


Class Schedule:

The first session will be held online via Zoom and then students will sign up for one in-studio session to print. To ensure safety and adequate social spacing, all in-studio work sessions are broken into four groups of 3 students each. Please select one in-studio session (Group A, B, C, or D):
