We’ll begin the lesson with a short walk to Hanok Village to find inspiration for your art prints. We'll then go to my cozy little art studio and learn the basics of silkscreen printing, including tips and techniques. I’ll show you the various samples of one degree screen printings. Once you have decided what to draw, I'll help you to do some sketching first. Then you can start to make a film with black ink on a tracing paper. The screen will already be prepared and the only thing we'll need to do is burn the screen with your film. Then we'll pull out the print on papers, fabric, and a canvas bag. No experience or exceptional talent is necessary—all you'll need to do is focus on your creation and have fun.
I'm an artist based in Seoul. I studied art in London and opened a little art studio in Seoul a few years ago. My passion for art started when I was only seven years old. I was fascinated by the lines, colors, and all the patterns they create. Creating an artwork is like a meditation process. It relieves you from the hardworking days and worries. If you are looking for a peaceful and inspiring night in Seoul, why don't you pop into my studio and experience my silkscreen class.
Coffee or tea
You'll get yourself to Chungmuro Station, Exit 3. When you exit the station, you will see a gas station and a Hollys Coffee shop on your right. Take the little alley between the Hollys and GS25, which is the path to the Hanok Village. I'll meet you at the gate of this village.
We will use silkscreen fabric ink and it can ruin your clothes. I recommend that you come with impervious clothing or a dark shirt or jumper.
