Learn the basics of screen printing in this fun 3 1/2 hour workshop for beginners. After an introduction to screen printing and an explanation of the different methods used, students will turn their own artwork into a stencil, prepare a screen and print their designs.
Students will learn about ink colours and using different placements of their design to create a pattern.
No previous experience required.
PLEASE NOTE: Screens are not pre prepared, students will be hand cutting their own stencils on the day using a craft knife. If you prefer a shorter class where screens are already prepared please see our social screen printing events.
This is an ideal workshop for anyone wanting to learn about screen printing and leave with the skills to continue printing at home or progress to a more advanced workshop.
The workshop length may vary slightly depending on the number of bookings.
