This studio course introduces students to silkscreen printing and book binding methods. A brief history of silkscreen printing and binding techniques serves as a platform for discussions. Emphasis is placed upon the conceptualization of projects, experimentation and design sensitivities in production. Using hand-drawn and digital separations as well as photographic stencils, a range of silkscreen techniques are explored through different projects on paper.
