Colour Screenprint Christmas Cards
|Leicester Print Workshop
|Date & Time
|Sunday 1st October
10.00am - 4.00pm.
Turn your favourite photograph into a full colour screenprint and create a set of original hand printed Christmas / greetings cards.
Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) is a four colour separation process, used to create full colour photographic images by layering the colours on top of each other. The technique is used by newspapers and magazines to produce full colour images.
During the day you will learn four colour screenprinting and will create a set of original, personalised full-colour, hand printed cards, from a favourite photograph.
