Printing with Thermofax Screens with PG Fiber2Art
Saturday, October 16, 2020
10:00 am – 3:00 pm, ½ hour lunch break

Class will take place in our warehouse; Covid-19 protocols may be in effect on that date. Have you ever wanted to incorporate screen-printed images in your quilts or mixed media projects? One method of printing is with Thermofax screens (sometimes called silk screens). Learn Thermofax printing techniques by practicing on fabrics and papers you bring using the exquisitely detailed screens provided by the instructors. You will learn how to:

  • Use images as focal point or create all-over designs
  • Layer images, and discuss combining with other surface design techniques
  • Print with discharge products, thickened dyes, resists
  • Use with foil, Inktense pigments
  • Prepare a screen for use by binding with duct tape

You will leave class with your own taped screen (small screen provided as part of supply fee) to use as often as you wish and as much printed fabric as you can complete in class! Note: Many of the instructors’ screens are made from their own photos. If you would like to print in class with a custom screen (additional fee) made from your own black and white photo or drawing AND have familiarity with Photoshop Elements, contact [email protected] for step-by-step instructions. PG Fiber2Art will invoice you based on the size of the screen: small $8, medium $12, large $16. Download your student supply list »
