Silkscreening with Vinyl (Multiple Red/Yellow Tool Checkoffs)
In this class you will make your own screenprinted patches.
This screenprinting method uses vinyl to create your silkscreen, which is a simple 1 day process that doesn’t require use of toxic chemicals. The downside is that it is much less permanent and detailed than the results you can achieve with photoemulsion.
Red/Yellow Tool Checkoffs:
Vinyl Cutter (Red Tool)
Screenprinting Area (Red Tool)
Flash Unit (Red Tool)
Serger (Yellow Tool) *(Optional at end of class)
Miscellaneous Skills Taught:
– Basic Inkscape
– How to go from traditional art background to digital CNC work using the path tracing tool
– Screenprinting on fabric
1 hour: Vinyl Cutter Checkoff
15 minutes: InDesign demo
45 minutes: Classroom time to design/cut/weed/place your own patch design
40 minutes: Screenprinting
20 minutes: Heat n Bond application
Optionally, another serger checkoff for people who like finished edges on their patches
When: February 1, 6-9 PM
Cost: $40/person. Maximum 6 attendees.
