Screen printing Workshop – 1 and 2 December

Screen printing workshop
1 and 2 December 2018
from 10.30am to 5pm
Everyone talks about it and you still do not understand how it works? It’s the right time to come to Il Bisonte and experience the thrill of sliding the squeegee on the frame!
Let’s prepare an acetate together: if you are confident creatives, you will draw directly of it, otherwise bring a file and we will print it together on the acetate sheet. Then we will teach you to spread the jelly on the frame, to impress the screens with your work and to print them. If time will be available we will introduce more colors.

120 euros
100 euros for those who have already attended our Masterclasses or Workshops and for the students of the Accademia delle Belle Arti.

Screen printing materials and some sheets of paper included (if you think you want to print several copies bring a few more sheets from home, and get even T-shirts, shoppers or other material if you want to use them).
For registration or more information write to: school@ilbisonte.it
