' Silk-screen printing workshop

The training

Silk-screen printing allows the printing of images such as photographs or drawings on glass. This technique is similar to the stencil technique. Screen printing can be used for the unique or serial reproduction of selected motifs. The process seen during the workshop consists in passing an ink (here paints for stained glass) through a fabric placed on a support (here the glass).

Why use screen printing?
