Silkscreen Course

Indicated by the Orange Highlighted Section on the Calendar 

Price: RM300 per person
Time: 6 hours total, 3-hours per session

Our silkscreen classes are open to all levels of expertise, including those who are completely new to silkscreen printing and those who are familiar but want to utilise our facilities. The full course (6 hours) will be divided into two 3-hour classes. During the course, students will get to learn the entire process from start to finish: preparing and exposing the screen to registering and printing the image. They will produce a minimum of (1) print on paper (Class 1) and (1) print onfabric/t-shirt/tote bag (Class 2). Any other unfinished projects can be printed during open studio hours.

All classes must be completed within a month from their the class. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any unfinished works left in the studio.

How to Book

Please choose the date(s) and time slot(s) (Afternoon or Night class) for your sessions that are highlighted in orange on the schedule of the month. We recommend splitting the course into 3 hours per class, although a full 6-hour session can be arranged. These are open class times and there is a chance you will be taking a class with another person (5 people max per class). We will notify you if the time slot is full and work with you to rearrange another class time. If you would like to book a private group class (also 5 people max per class), we will work with you to arrange a date.

Can’t make it to one of our time slots? / Want to book a private group class?
We can be flexible with the dates. You can choose another day during the week (during our Open Studio times indicated in green on the calendar) to take a class if you cannot make it to one of our designated dates. There will be an extra RM50 per person for class time changes and for those who want to book a private group class.
E-mail Julienne at raksasa@raksasaprint.com to book the dates for your class.
