This day course covers the CMYK process for screenprinting, which is often used to reproduce photographic images.

This four colour separation process (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) builds the image through layers of colour. You will learn how to halftone and separate an image, mix colours and registration.

This course will be the ideal next step for those who are already screenprinters and those up for a challenge.
