Primal Screen—Screen Printing Intro Workshop

Taught by Robby Poore
Paint dripping into a cup

In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll cover the basics of putting images on screens with photo emulsion, ink mixing, and how to effectively use a squeegee to put ink through the screen and print an image. We’ll focus 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 2-color poster to take home!

About the Instructor

I am a graphic designer, musician, DJ, and screen printer based in Chapel Hill, NC. I have a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico in painting, drawing, and printmaking. I’ve been screen printing punk rock t-shirts and oddball prints since 1982. I also do lots of illustrations, designs, and other fun things.
