What we'll do

TWO DAYS Students will learn the fundamentals of screenprinting in this crash course. Your instructor, Better Than Jam's owner and maker, Karin Persan, will start with a demo of the process, and then go through the proper materials and techniques. Students will be shown the different ways one can get an image onto a screen, and a few different production methods of printing. By the end of class you will be printing your own image!  Students should come with a 8.5" x 14" Image they would like to make into a screen print. In the first day we discuss your artwork and how to convert digitally into a screen ready file. Coming with multiple ideas is a good move.
