ART113: Silkscreen Printing Basics - SBU

In this hands-on class, learn the basics of silkscreen printing. TechShop makes it easy by using vinyl stencils rather than photo-emulsion. Prepare a vinyl stencil, transfer onto a screen, apply ink to fabric through screen, and then heat set the ink. It’s that simple.

Want to print a t-shirt using your own artwork? Bring a simple black and white drawing that will be cut by hand. Participants who have passed the Vinyl Cutter Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class may bring in a pre-cut design to use. Otherwise, choose from several designs provided. Get ready to start making custom silkscreened t-shirts!

Project: Custom t-shirt

Prerequisites: None!

Equipment access: Silkscreen station

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.

T-shirt provided: black or white. Please bring your own if you would like a custom shirt color.



Recommended for sharp graphics on your shirt: CNC vinyl cutter SBU, but not required. This silkscreen class will teach a hand cutting vinyl method with an exacto knife. Choose from pre-approved images provided by the instructor.



If you have taken the vinyl cutting class, please cut your vinyl sheet ahead of time and bring to class. You will need the negative for screen printing, not the vinyl sticker cut-out, so please bring the whole vinyl sheet unpeeled.

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!
