All Ages Silkscreen Workshop @ Belmont Sat. June 25

Unique Tees:  Silkscreen
Fenella Belle, Instructor of Art, Piedmont Virginia Community College
Saturday, June 25, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Audience: 3rd grade to adult

From idea to finished object, participants print their own professional-looking and unique t-shirt. Starting by discussing what makes a good design, participants create their own designs, cut stencils and print onto shirts using the silkscreen printing technique. Along the way, the concept of positive and negative shapes is introduced as they relate to stencil design. This workshop is a fun and fast paced day that involves both individual creativity and team work! Participants provide own t-shirts.

Watch this video of our last silkscreen class – loads of fun!
