This is a suggested primer class for those doing our Fabric Printing for Beginners or Paper Printing for Beginners classes. It’s not essential to do ‘Preparing Artwork for Print’ first, but it will give you a deeper understanding of how to separate and prepare your artwork correctly to get the results out of the images you’d like to print.
In this 3 hour introduction class you’ll learn to take a graphic and adapt it so that it can be screen printed*.
If you have drawings, digital artwork or just ideas you want to begin printing we’ll show you how to get started. No matter your background, if you’re a graphic designer, a budding illustrator or an absolute beginner we’ll cater the class content to the individuals in each class.
*Please note that this is an artwork preparation class and does not include print time. If you want to print your final artwork, after completing this class we recommend that you join our Fabric Printing for Beginners or Paper Printing for Beginners classes.
