Taught by Nichola Prested

Over this full day intensive workshop, you will be taught the entire step by step process of textile screen printing and everything that it involves. You will get hands on experience with exposing the screens with your own artwork, then printing and heat setting your designs onto fabric. During this course you will learn about designing specifically for screen printing. 

No experience necessary, there will be help at every step and lots of material to be inspired by. We highly recommend taking our stencil workshop, Learn to Screen Print in a Day! before enrolling in this workshop.

What you will learn

  • The basics of emulsion screen printing
  • How to prepare and coat your screen
  • Basics of textile design and how to create a repeating design then transfer it onto film
  • How to expose your screen in the UV exposure unit
  • How to wash out your screen to reveal your design
  • How to set up your printing area and mix your inks
  • How to print your design onto fabric

The following are available for purchase in small numbers on the day or can be pre-ordered by purchasing when booking the workshop (see details on the left of your screen). Bulk orders should be made at least 1 week before the workshop to ensure supplies are available on the day. You are welcome to bring along your own fabrics, t-shirts etc.
