Screen Printing

Screenprinting workshops and guided assistance from experienced printers are available to everyone.

ACRE’s screen-printing studio contains a dark room, exposure unit, printing stations with hinge clamps, dozens of screens, washing and drying equipment, and more. Staffed by a master screen printer at all times, the studio provides paper, inks, emulsions, transparencies, and other supplies free to any resident that wishes to use them. Residents who plan to print a lot are encouraged to bring their own paper, fabric or material to print on, inks they know they will specifically want to work with or other specialty supplies. Access to scanners, computers and printers in the studio and other areas of the campus are provided for creating images to work with. As with other facilities, there are built-in training sessions for anyone who might be new or rusty to the basics of screen printing.
