the long island art collective presents a silk screening workshop!
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 5TH, 4-6 ish PM
come on down to the long island freespace to be a part of the first of many hands on, creative workshops
silkscreening is an art. here's the jist of it: it's a method used to make an ink print. the ink is pushed through a piece of silk stretched over a frame. there is a stencil that's placed on the screen that blocks areas of the ink so that it prevents the ink from going through in certain places. this is used to make patches, shirts, flyers, anything!
we will be teaching each step of the multi faceted art of silk screening. (how to make a screen, how to make a stencil, how to print…)
if you have any materials available bring them! (ink, fabric..)
