Introduction to Screen Printing

Partnership with DukeCreate

Taught by Matt Tauch

About the Workshop

This two-hour workshop will cover the basics of putting images on screens (making a stencil), ink mixing, and how to effectively use a squeegee to get ink through the screen and print multiple copies of an image. The focus is on printing on paper (which is essentially the same process as printing on t-shirts). Everyone will get many chances to print, and you’ll have a deluxe, one-of-a-kind, two-color poster to take home! This course is a prerequisite for using the space; after the workshop everyone who attends the class will be on the “approved printers” list and can use the Duke Annex Print Studio at will.

About the Location

Address: 404 Gattis St, Durham, NC 27701

About DukeCreate

DukeCreate is a series of free, hands-on arts workshops designed to help Duke students, staff, and faculty develop a variety of creative skills. Workshops are open to all skill levels and backgrounds. Most take place in the Duke Arts Annex or the Rubenstein Arts Center and are typically held weeknights 6-8pm.

Workshops are free to all Duke students and staff, with priority given to students. Class size is limited. Students must sign up in advance. Registration for the following week’s DukeCreate workshops goes live on Friday mornings – sign up in advance to guarantee your spot!  Online enrollment for Duke staff opens on the day of the workshop. Staff can also show up 10 minutes prior to a workshop in case a slot becomes available. Walk-ins will be accommodated on a space-available basis.

DukeCreate is sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts (DukeArts) and University Center Activities and Events (UCAE).
