CMYK Screenprint in Full Colour

Location Leicester Print Workshop
Date & Time Saturday 13th and 14th April 2024 
10.00am - 4.00pm
Tutor  Katy Goodrich 

This weekend course covers the CMYK process for screenprinting, which is often used to reproduce photographic images.

It is a four colour separation process (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) that builds the image through layers. Basic screenprinting will be covered, in addition to learning how to halftone and separate an image using Photoshop, mixing colours and registration.

This course will be the ideal next step for those who are already screenprinters and those up for a challenge. Taught by Katy, one of our Studio Team, you will learn endless insider tips and tricks to produce excellent and accomplished work.
