Learn the art of silk-screen printing this weekend at the Met Museum
The METLab's serigraphy workshop kicks off a month-long lineup of activities!
(SPOT.ph) Serigraphy is more commonly called screen or silk-screen printing. And because it’s National Arts Month, the Metropolitan Museum of Manila will be offering different workshops and activities every Saturday of February (yay!)—the first will be Serigraphy for Beginners this Saturday, February 6. Beginners aged 12 and up can try their hands at serigraphy with a printmaking workshop with artist and facilitator Renan Ortiz.
Serigraphy became a popular art form in the '60s Pop Art scene. Basically, there’s a stencil stretched into a screen frame and you can transfer your design onto fabric, paper, or almost any surface by applying ink or paint over it. Many DIY enthusiasts are fond of screen-printing. It’s a practical skill; you can reproduce your patterns on shirts, pillowcases, walls—the possibilities are endlessly fun!
Workshop fee is P800, inclusive of materials.
Serigraphy for Beginners is happening on February 6, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the METLab, Metropolitan Museum of Manila. The Met Museum is at BSP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Malate, Manila (firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-7828). For more information, visit the MET's website.
