Learn to screen print while creating a bold, colourful, Typographic poster inspired by Pop artist Corita Kent.
Corita Kent was a contemporary of Andy Warhol, and also a Nun, who created joyful, subversive and sometimes controversial ‘Pop Art’ screen prints which revolutionised typographic design, challenged the Roman Catholic Church and carried political messages about racism, poverty and injustice.
Kent created her prints using simple techniques of hand painting onto the screens, cut and torn paper stencils, and the layering of bold with transparent colours.
On this one day workshop you will learn and experiment with these simple techniques which are all easy to acheive at home with the minimum of equipment.Through experimenting and playing you will create your own inspirational, political, or even controversial, poster to take home !
Suitable for complete beginners and those who want to explore fun, analogue screen printing techniques !
