Please login to enroll in this event.

About the workshop:

A workshop covering the basics of screen printing:

the necessary equipment and how it's used;
coating and "burning" a screen;
the mechanics of pulling a print;
a few best-practice tips and tricks.

Participants will have ample opportunity to get their hands dirty (inky) practicing printing technique and everyone will walk away with a two-color DukeCreate poster that they've printed themselves.

About the instructor:

A working graphic designer, Matthew Tauch graduated from NC State University College of Design with a master's degree in 2002. In addition to working as a full-time book designer at Duke University Press, he also DJs regularly on WXDU. In fact, it was creating posters for performances sponsored by the radio station that 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 become a vital component of his ongoing creative practice.
