This short day workshop provides a taster of the screen printing process, and is a perfect way to create hand-made Christmas gifts for friends and family. Take home tote bags printed with your own design, and learn a new skill while you’re at it!
This is a great workshop for those who are new to printmaking, or can also act as refresher for those who have had some previous experience of screen printing. You will learn how a design is transferred onto a screen, and print your own design onto tote bags using water-based inks. The cost of the course includes 3 tote bags per person, and more can be purchased at £3 per bag. Alternatively we will have some plain calico fabric to print on.
If you have a hectic life and have to squeeze your creative time into a tightly-packed schedule, our CREATE! Saturday Sessions are for you! You can have your weekend morning lie-in, learn a new skill and indulge your creativity, and get home in time for tea! All our workshops are suitable for beginners and are taught by expert tutors, and the price of the course includes all materials.
Karen Stansfield is printmaker/maker who previously worked in television, theater and the fashion industry. She now works from her studio exploring different printing medium and exhibits locally.
All course prices include basic materials such as ink and cartidge paper. We also stock a range of good quality printmaking papers including Somerset, Fabriano, Zerkall and Hanhnemuhle, which can be purchased as extra. Tea, coffee and biscuits are also provided.
