Curing your need for Screen Printing: Photo Emulsion Process

Saturday, June 18, 2022 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

Come and join us for a 3-hour screen printing workshop with artist Ana Henriques.

Join us for screenprinting where we learn the photo emulsion method to burn an image to a silkscreen! This class will require you to send your chosen image to your instructor beforehand, to ensure it is ready for printing on the day of the workshop. The emulsion method is a great way to print a highly detailed image repeatedly on paper or textiles. MakeHaven will have pieces of fabric that can be used to learn on, participants are encouraged to bring t-shirts from home to print on and/or other materials. Students will have the option to purchase their screen at the end of the workshop.

You can watch the badging video for screen printing HERE. Badging is not required to take part in this class.

Instructor Bio: 

Ana Henriques’s works on handmade paper, or wall hangings, explore the spaces women fill and create, asking how the metaphysical or spiritual is used to elevate/explore the female narrative. She also explores destruction and regeneration, and the socio-political history of women. She uses elements of South American quilts and weaving, traditional embroidery and paper making/cutting to consider how craft is used functionally and traditionally by women. Her interests extend to illustration, surface pattern design, story-telling, embroidery, and various printmaking methods.

As a project coordinator for OPIRG (Ontario Public Interest Research Group), she brought the work of women weavers from Tlamacazapa, Mexico to Ontario informing her exploration of traditional craft. Ana received a BFA in Visual Arts at York University, after a gap year teaching in Hong Kong. She then trained as an art teacher in Oxford, UK. The breadth of experience and perspective gleaned from traveling and teaching in myriad countries continues to inform her art and practice.
