Silkscreen printing

 

Silkscreen, a technique as old as the hills but now back in fashion.

Discover its many possibilities using a wide range of techniques.

But more importantly, enter into a visual dialogue with each other and make your design interact with other people's.

 

"Silkscreen printers are colour whisperers and print conjurors," as a journalist for the magazine Knack once wrote.

Whisper and conjure with us, and discover the wide range of methods for creating your image: collage techniques, drawing, paper cutting, illuminating objects, stencils ...

Become acquainted with repetitive printing and then abandon this technique to discover random side-effects.

Go wild with the PrintJam and collaborate with others to define the design process.

 

Els Baeten (1975) and Jasper Van Grunsven (1980) are mad about silkscreen printing.

They are also the founders of Gezeever, the open silkscreen workshop at De Veerman. A place where silkscreen fans can come and print their own work. Gezeever is not only a shared workshop but also a meeting place where people come together and have room to exchange ideas and techniques.
