Fairfax, Virginia – SGIA takes screen making to a new level with its new and improved workshop, "Screen Making: Basic to Professional," on June 27-July 1, 2011, where attendees start with basic methods and progress to using the latest screen-making techniques.
"The SGIA basic to professional screen making class contains the most up-to-date state of the art information available for screen making professionals at any level," said Ray Greenwood, SGIA's technical services associate and workshop instructor. "There is no other place to get all of this information at one time."
The workshop features five days of targeted educational sessions complete with hands-on demonstrations. The focused sessions cover a wide range of topics, including:
- Choosing the right mesh, stencil and frame
- Correct screen-stretching procedures
- Proper stencil application techniques
- Determining optimum stencil exposure
"This course was beyond my expectations - very informative and technical," said previous attendee Pablo Meza, Oberthur Card Systems (Rancho Dominguez, California). "I will invite fellow co-workers to attend. It opened my eyes to how important my job is as a screen maker."
