What is Screen printing?
Screen printing is one of the oldest manual printing techniques in the world, enabling printing and copying accurately on a wide variety of surfaces. This is a 2,000-year-old technique that has undergone many transformations throughout history and remains relevant to this day in industry, art, and design. A dense mesh of polyester (formerly silk threads - hence the popular name of the technique, "silk pattern") is stretched on an aluminum frame with which the image is printed on the surface. The magic of the manual printing is alive and kicking!
Here at the studio, we live, smell and create in screen printing and therefore we are the largest and professional studio for screen printing producing and for manual printing techniques. The screen printing school offers courses for printing and textile design and courses for printing wood paper and materials. The courses are taught by designers and professionals who are graduates of design academies who create techniques and professionalism in their fields.
Working in the print workshop is always in small groups, enabling personal contact and professional guidance of the lecturer with each student. All the courses and workshops are open to inexperienced creators in all fields. Special emphasis is placed on learning techniques and methods that can be applied later at home or in the personal studio for further self-creation.
The studio space is also open for independent artists who know the technique based on the rental of a stand and materials.
