A Flexible Screening Printing Technique for Fabric

Luther Burbank Art and Garden Center, 2050 Yulupa Ave, Santa Rosa (map)
Non-Guild Members welcome.

Lecture: A description and show of images of polychromatic screen printing. This method combines both painting and printing. It allows the same flexibility and spontaneity as painting on paper or fabric, with the added result of more than one print. Since the discovery of the technique, polychromatic printing has been Joy’s main focus, capturing her imagination with a great range of approaches. She will describe steps leading to the development of the printing process, approaches to designing, integrating textiles in daily life, and show images of her work. Actual examples of artwork will illustrate many approaches to the printing process.

This is an excellent workshop for painters, monoprinters, watercolorists, textile artists, screen printer, or anyone interested in obtaining multiples from one painted image on paper or fabric. Why labor over one painting when you can paint once and get multiples? The innovative process of polychromatic screen printing results in a limited edition from the original painted screen — with no color registration. Similar to an extended monoprint process that produces 5-8 prints from a single painted image. Students complete one print session. No solvents used. For all levels of ability. Five students only.
