Hands-On Intro to Screen Printing

Taught by Matthew Tauch

Hands-on Intro to Screen Printing

We’ll cover the basics of screen printing: the necessary equipment and how it’s used, coating and “burning” a screen, the mechanics of pulling a print, and a few best-practice tips and tricks. During the workshop, participants will have ample opportunity to “get their hands dirty (inky)” practicing printing technique; and everyone will walk away with a 2-color DukeCreate poster that they’ve printed themselves.

About The Instructor

A working graphic designer, Matthew graduated from NC State University College of Design with a masters degree in 2002. In addition to working as a full-time book designer at Duke University Press, he also DJ’s regularly on WXDU. In fact, it was creating posters for performances sponsored by the radio station that initially re-ignited Matt’s passion for print-making. Whether it’s through incorporating the aesthetic into his book cover designs, participating in live printing at festivals and events, exploring self-initiated projects, or leading how-to workshops, screen printing has undoubtably become a vital component of his ongoing creative practice.
