Workshops

Basic:

You'll learn the basics; from mixing ink to creating simple paper stencils - before you know it you'll be a skilled-up squeegee warrior! (Maybe you did it a few years ago at college and need a bit of a refresher - c'mon over, we'll soon dust the cobwebs off!)

Dates:
26th May 2018
24th November 2018

Places are just £50 per person. To book a place call 07811 460494 or to book online (which includes a £1.50 online booking fee) click here.

Intermediate:

You've mastered the basics and you want a new challenge... Great! We'll show you how to take it to the next level. Come and learn how to 'expose' an image on to a screen using only light and magic chemicals. Then we'll show you some simple and fundamental registration techniques, master this and you'll get consistent results time after time.

Dates:
17th February 2018
29th September 2018

Places are just £60 per person. (This workshop has very low numbers in each session, and is very materials heavy, hence the slight difference in cost.) To book a place call 07811 460494 or to book online (which includes a £1.50 online booking fee) click here.

School Bookings:

A Print Club workshop showing all the basics you need to making stunning screen prints - mixing ink, playing with squeegees and creating simple paper stencil techniques. Available on a day of your choosing, for £250 for the day (max 10 students). All they need to bring is lunch and some imagery/ideas to work from.

I can also offer a workshop using the photo-emulsion exposure system, which allows for images to be exposed directly onto the screens from prepared artworks, the finished artworks can be emailed to me and printed onto acetates to expose on to the screen. This workshop also includes a half day fee of £125 for artwork/screen preparation time.

Screen printing is a brilliantly flexible medium and is especially useful for developing and strengthing understanding of composition and lay out, colour theory, graphic design as well being adaptable and transferable to most themes and ideas.

Factoids


*We print on to paper, but if you're interested in printing onto textiles, don't worry, the knowledge and skills are all transferable.
*It's all waterbased - but you should probably bring an old shirt or apron, don't come in your Sunday best!
*Bring a packed lunch, we're in the lovely countryside, so there's not a hypermarket or overpriced Spar in sight!
