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 €400 per person per level for a 32 hour session.

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