Join Val Loewen in pursuit of the harmonious relationship between squeegee, ink, and screen. This workshop covers the basics of stencil screen printing, from producing film to pulling a print. 

Participants will have the opportunity to work with hand drawn film or digital film created in photoshop. Various methods of image production will be covered, including basic photoshop techniques. Prior experience with photoshop is not mandatory, however it is encouraged for those who wish to work exclusively with digital film. 

Participants can expect to finish this workshop with a two or three colour printed edition of their own design and the knowledge needed to continue screen printing independently.
