Silkscreen courses in Paris

I give traditional silkscreen courses, not industrial serigraphy courses. Hence all the work is done entirely by hand : the preparation of screens and the printing onto various materials. The student learns different techniques of transferring a picture or a drawing onto a screen, is introduced to the blending of inks and practises printing onto paper and textile.

Several levels are available and for each level the courses cover 4 weeks.

Level 1 : beginners 

  • Theoretical overview of the different screen printing techniques that have been used from their origins in China to the present day.
  • Practical training :  . manual preparation of screens (Chinese ancestral method, blocking substance method, liquid latex method, “à la frisquette” method, etc…) . preparation of the ink and printing onto various surfaces (paper, textile, cardboard,Tee-shirts, etc…)

Level 2 : advanced

  • Further examination of certain technical points concerning the manual preparation of screens and introduction to the use of the photo emulsion method.
  • Further study of colours and inks : analysis and colorimetry of inks, colour harmonies, contrasts, gradation, creation of colours, etc…
  • Preparation of colours and printing onto various materials.

The fees are of €320 per level for a 32 hour session.

All the necessary materials are provided and included in the price.
