Registration Info:

Our registration system has changed!
Going forward, registration for all Duke Arts Create workshops will now be processed through the Duke University Box Office. To streamline this transition, we have prepared a user guide that will walk you through the new registration process. Watch the video here.

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 Instructor

Matt is a local Durham artist, Co-Director of Super G Print Lab and Senior Book Designer at Duke University Press.
