On Monday, 9th October, the students from the Master in Graphic Design visited the printmaking workshop in EINA Barra de Ferro Arts Centre.
Once there Lluc Massaguer, professor of Graphic Arts, and Esther Aguila, the workshop mistress, taught them step by step the process of screen printing. The screens were coated with photosensitive emulsion, then dried and exposed to light, washed out with a pressure washer, and in the end the students had a chance to print the designs on all kinds of mediums: paper, cardboard, fabric, etc.
Screen printing is a technique full of possibilities: you can use it on many different surfaces, getting very interesting results.
Barra de Ferro is not only a workshop but also an exhibition hall. You can find it in Barra de Ferro Street 2, open Monday – Saturday from 4pm to 8pm.
