Samsam Elmi is a Toronto-based artist and printmaker with an honours BFA in Visual Art from York University. She worked as a print media studio monitor at York and, after graduating, participated in the Open Studio work exchange program as a studio assistant. She is an artist member of Open Studio and has taught education classes, including ‘Intro to Screenprinting’ at Open Studio.

Elmi’s practice mainly utilizes Intaglio and Screenprinting processes, focusing on the exploration of mark-making juxtaposed with representational imagery. She describes art-making as a cathartic process that captures memories and significant moments that have shaped her outlook as a person and artist.


Welcome to this 2‐Day Screen Printing workshop. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of screen printing. Whether you want to work with hand-drawn imagery, photos, and halftones, or a mix of the two; this workshop will teach you how to create multi-layered and multi-colored screen prints. Participants will be guided through creating and exposing layers, registration when printing, as well as how to edition finished prints. 

Questions are welcome and encouraged throughout the workshop. Please bring a notebook or sketchbook to take notes in. It always helps to have notes to refer back to, both during and after the printing process.
