Screenprinting

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

Screen-printing is a technique where a mesh screen (originally made from silk) is used in conjunction with a squeegee to push ink (which has been mixed with a medium) through to a substrate, except in the areas that have been ‘blocked’ off.
Screen-printing offers lots of experimentation and control over the way a design is printed. The ‘size’ of the screen affects the way a design looks, and screens range from very fine, affording great detail and complexity, to broader screens for coarser work and application on to fabric.
