WHAT YOU'LL TAKE AWAY: Learn intermediate techniques through multiple colour printing on paper: Intermediate methods for designing layered artwork; ink mixing and expanding colour range; reclaiming your screen; the registration system; multiple colour effects through two-colour printing techniques; and approximately 4 hours of studio time to print. Print your own artwork and take away small art prints on paper or fabric you've brought with you. Note: This workshop will focus on printing on paper, although these techniques can be applied to fabric and other mediums.
