Screen printing is a printmaking technique where a wooden or aluminium frame is covered tightly with a mesh. This is used to transfer ink onto paper or fabric. It is possible to make areas
impermeable to the paint by a blocking stencil. This can be done by exposing an image onto the mesh using a light sensitive emulsion or even with a hand cut paper stencil. Each image is created
by printing one colour at a time to make up the image. The squeegee is moved across the screen to cover the open mesh with the paint. Once the squeegee is pulled forward to print, it is then
pushed in a reverse action to flood the screen with enough paint to print the next print.
