Modultype: elective module
Modul ID: DK.BA_+FO_SBD.22
Competences: Material & Practice
4. – 15. September 2023
Lecture(s): Nadine Spengler, Marco Backer
Basic knowledge of screen printing techniques is taught and various stitching techniques for sketchbooks and books are introduced and applied. Successful completion of the module entitles the student to use the screen printing workshop independently, in each case in consultation with the workshop manager.
Students receive technical introductions in theory and practice with the medium of screen printing and bookbinding.
In the first week, a design for a cover is implemented creatively and the possibilities of screen printing technology (color application, overprinting) are discovered and tried out. The artwork and color separations are produced by hand or digitally and printed in two colors.
In the second week, the printed covers are then hand-made into sketchbooks, bound books, and face boxes in a variety of stitching styles (single-ply and multi-ply brochures, butterfly stitching, stitching on ribbon and cardstock).
Finally, the work is presented and discussed in plenary.
Module in German
Participation in technical introductions, project presentation, and at least 80% attendance.
GRADING OF ASSESSED ASSIGNMENT(S)
The performance record is evaluated on the basis of five criteria:
1. idea and visual realization of an own design
2. technical understanding
3. independent work
5. examination of feedback
The students were introduced to the theory and practice of screen printing and bookbinding. Various covers for sketchbooks, books and cardboard were implemented in terms of design and illustration. The artwork and color separations were converted by hand or digitally and printed in two colors. Subsequently, the covers were further processed into sketchbooks, books and cardboard boxes (single-ply/multi-ply brochures, butterfly stitching, stitching on tape and faceplates).
