Default Screen printing studios

Odd question No.1

Does anyone know of screen printing space in Dubai - I don't mean t-shirt / commercial stuff, more hands on and designing the stencils etc.

Maybe an art college?

It's a long shot this one....

yes it's a long shot!!! ring the American University of Dubai and try their Art Department, in the past when I have needed advice on this sort of stuff I have tried the Colleges first - often these specialised centres contact them when they are looking for staff, other than that I am of no help whatsover!

from wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serigraphy

Screenprinting, silkscreening, or serigraphy is a printmaking technique that creates a sharp-edged image using a stencil. A screenprint or serigraph is an image created using this technique.

It began as an industrial technology, and was adopted by American graphic artists in the early 1900s. It is currently popular both in fine arts and in commercial printing, where it is commonly used to print images on T-shirts, hats, CDs, DVDs, ceramics, glass, polyethylene, polypropylene, paper, metals, and wood.

Graphic screenprinting is widely used today to create many mass or large batch produced graphics, such as posters or display stands. Full color prints can be created by printing in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). Screenprinting is often preferred over other processes such as dye sublimation or inkjet printing because of its low cost and ability to print on many media.


I'm interested in printing layers onto stretched canvas / mixed media using photographic techniques. (Now if Little Jimmy doesn't call me the uber pretentious snob now....)

The most famous artist to use screenprinting is Andy Warhol:

I will PM you a number for someone. He did an amazing graphic for me and does a lot of stuff for my DH. I have his card at work but can PM you his mobile number. If he can't help you, then hopefully he can point you in the right direction. DH in the US so he can't help right now.
