Workshop Description

The origins of silkscreen printing date to around the 900’s CE, but silkscreen printing as we think of it today really took hold in the art world with artists like Andy Warhol, and found a firm home in Pop Culture!  Join printmaker Nathan Cann for a 4-week introduction to silkscreen printing. Participants will learn the basics of silkscreen printing, how to make a stencil, set a screen, print and reset their mesh. This session will leave participants with the abilities to print their own images and designs. Classes are limited to six participants for plenty of workspace and instruction time.

Most supplies are included, and students will be asked to supply a t-shirt in the size of their choice.

About your Instructor

Nat Cann is a Canadian artist of settler ancestry. Since graduating from Mount Allison University, Nat has enjoyed exhibiting work across Canada in public galleries, artist-run centers, and workshops dabbling in new media, assemblage, experimental printmaking and the typical Atlantic Canadian withering—nature reclaiming the settler’s notion of heritage. Such ideas have been explored from coast to coast via residencies and workshops in lands both fantastic and remote. Nat now resides in Saint John, New Brunswick, on the traditional lands of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples where he currently instructs workshops in printmaking at the Saint John Arts Centre.
