How to screenprint using a 4 colour carousel.

Sun 24 Feb 10:00AM

This introductory workshop will provide participants with an understanding of how to set up a Manual Screen Print carousel which will enable designers to screen print up to four colours accurately and efficiently.  Carousel printing is perfect for production runs of placement prints on T-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, tea towels and will enable printers to achieve a professional print run efficiently.

If you have had some experience with creating designs for screenprints and you are now wanting to get your design out into the marketplace this is the workshop for you.  A great way to produce single or multicolored designs.

If you know how to prepare your own photographic stencils,  this workshop will also provide you with the induction to be able to book the carousel if you join Sunshine Print Artspace and wish to produce your own collections of printed products.
