Screen Printing—Print on Everything 万物皆可印——丝网印刷
About the Event 关于活动
Screen printing – everything is printable! (Maybe not water and air.) Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate to produce a design featuring image or scripts. Screen printing is also known as all-purpose printing: other than the more familiar materials like textile, plastics, ceramics, glass and wood can also be used as the substrate for screen printing to exert its magical power.
During the exhibition of “John Armleder: Again, Just Again”, the galleries on the second and fourth floors present a diverse selection of the artist’s painting works and a wall painting specially made for the space. Drawing inspiring from the artist’s ingenious use of paint, including splashing, pouring, repeating and dripping, the workshop intends to continue the exploration into issues such as chance and repetition, improvisation and order.
During the workshop, participants will have the chance to experience the unique charisma of screen printing. From pattern design, plate making, screen exposure, using a blade to move across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and then to the big-surprise moment: to see it for yourself the final result, participants will experience the whole process of screen printing step by step under the guidance of instructor. And more excitingly, in the end of the workshop you will bring home with you a unique piece of screen printed something made by your own!
*Participants must be 13 years old and above.
