I took part in a screen printing workshop, where I went through the process of cleaning and preparing a screen and the actual printing. Screen printing is great for printing many things such as posters and company logos onto t-shirts. Although the process is quite long, the outcomes can feel very rewarding and satisfying.
The screen is made from a fine mesh material fixed to a metal frame. A stencil is placed under the screen and ink is forced through the stencil onto the material below. Screen printing works best for blocks of colour.
