This course teaches you the basics of screen printing. You start by making your design, either digitally or using analogue means. To be suitable for screen printing, your design must meet a number of criteria. You learn how to build up a picture when you want to use several different colours, for example. You then transfer your design to the screen and start the printing process. You will learn about the different types of substrate and the corresponding ink types.

The course offers plenty of room to experiment with colour, layout and substrate. You are free to choose your own project; there are no fixed assignments. The teacher is always available to help people with their individual projects.

Safety measures coronavirus:

  • Adhere to the RIVM guidelines and the guidelines of the TU Delft.
  • Keeping 1.5 metres distance is no longer a rule; however, it is still a sensible idea to allow each other plenty of room.
  • Any symptoms: stay at home and get tested.
  • Good hygiene remains important.
  • If you take part in activities that fall under your X subscription, make sure you have your Campus Card or X card with you.
  • Inside Cafe X and at some events, a COVID certificate is required.
