Hand printed tote bags and tea towels make awesome gifts for the following hard to buy for relatives and friends:
- the head of the household in charge of Christmas dinner
- the greenie sibling who refuses to use anything disposable in the kitchen
- the food snob friend who only eats organic and has an Instagram perfect kitchen
- the space cadet friend forever losing their things and they just need a good ol' tote bag to put their shit in
It's perfect for anybody really, so you should join us to hand-make some last minute Chrissy pressies with Mrs C & Me!
You'll learn the basics of screen printing in a rad and relaxed class- we'll cover what the heck screen printing actually is, the different types and where to access them, how to print at home and EVERYTHING you need to know about stencils!
Create a design, cut out a stencil and print it onto a tea towel or tote bag using the fabulous fabric inks provided (red and green not neccessary but highly recommended for a festive flair)
You'll leave with all the mad skills, and get information to be able to continue printing at home.
Although this class goes for 3 hours, it can take a bit less time depending on the complexity of your design and your speed of cutting out.
If you want to make extra on the day, you can purchase an extra tea towel or tote bag for $6 each.
Keep calm and keep printing!
Hello, I’m Kitty from Mrs C and Me. I am a maker, teacher and creative ambassador. I love to make things and through teaching I hope to empower others to share my energy and nourish their creative side. My goal is that everyone who attends a workshop learns a skill that they can take away but most importantly they have fun.I studied screen printing at college and continued creating on and off for the next few years until I decided to make it a full time thing.
Check out mrscandme.com or instagram.com/mrscandme to find out which workshops I have coming up.
- Learn everything about screen printing- what it is and what is involved.
- The different types of printing and where to access them, as well as how to print at home
