Silk-screen printing is a very ancient technique which originates from Chinese antiquity. It is a modern way of printing reproduction that works on all supports such as textiles, paper, plexiglas, and cardboard.
The educational, social, and economic repercussions of such training are almost immediate. This program represents an easy learning process particularly suited for individuals with a low level of education, and requires a low financial investment.
Young screen process printers have a potential market of their own. In Brazil, many cultural, sporting, or political demonstrations generate marketing tools such as banners, flags, shirts and caps with the slogans and logos of the event. Furthermore, even in the smallest Brazilian companies, employees always wear shirts bearing the logo of their firm. Similarly, each political election creates a whirlwind of clothes and other accessories bearing the name of a particular candidate.
Nordesta Reforestation & Education wishes to offer training to young people that understand and closely reflect the country’s economic reality. It is through our numerous workshops that many can acquire the skills needed to contribute towards this part of the Brazilian economy.
