POTSDAM -- Printmaker Erich Neitzke of Potsdam is teaching a do-it-yourself screenprinting workshop on Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to noon and Aug. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at SLC Arts.

Screen printing is a printmaking technique which uses a mesh screen. Students will build their own screens from scratch during the first class to keep. During the second class, participants will use paper, screen blocker and fluid to create original screen stencils for printing multi-layered designs on cloth and paper. Neitzke will also cover troubleshooting printing problems, reclaiming screens, repairing screens and discussion about current printers in the silk screen community.

Cost is $130 which includes most supplies, with discounted rates available for SLC Arts members or those in need of financial assistance. Students will need to bring a few basic supplies, such as door hinges. They should request a supply list when registering. Class will meet in room 229, Downtown Snell Hall, 41 Elm St. Pre-registration through SLC Arts is required: 265-6860, www.slcartscouncil.org and click "Calendar."
