Screen printing (or serigraph) is a process of printmaking with water based or acrylic based pigments on paper and other printable substrates.

Join Majid Alloush for a two-session workshop to discover the basic techniques of screen printing. Participants will begin by creating stencils from photographs or drawings before proceeding to colour registration. Majid will then explain the importance of choosing the right mesh size before demonstrating the photo emulsion process and how to use the UV exposure unit. Participants will then proceed in applying their newly found knowledge in making a series of single and multiple coloured screen prints and in doing so, learn different registration techniques (i.e. aligning the screen image ensuring each colour in the separations is in correct relation to each other).

By the end of the workshop, participants should have the skills to screen print with confidence and explore its application within their own visual art practice and experiment with it in other media including photography, digital imaging and painting.
