Join in with our Big Draw month! Spend a weekend learning screen printing in our professionally equipped workshop with artist and printmaker Clare Caulfield. Learn how to translate hand-drawn designs and photographs into multi-coloured screen prints on paper using the photo-stencil technique.
Ideal for beginners or those who want to refresh their memory, this course will cover everything you need to get you started with screen printing, including basic printing with paper stencils, preparing artwork for print, coating, exposing and developing screens, printing using water-based inks, layering colours, and registration technqiues. By the end of the weekend you will have a thorough understanding of the screen printing process, and be confident with using our specialist equipment to create your own multi-coloured screen prints. Explore this diverse medium in a friendly learning environment using our excellent facilities.
Clare Caulfield is a practising artist and long-standing member of WYPW. Her work is inspired by her travels around the world, and she exhibits widely around the UK and beyond. Clare has been teaching screen printing at WYPW for over ten years.

Here’s what one of our past students had to say about the course:
“Having never screen printed before, I now cannot wait to come again! I had a fantastic experience. Worth every penny! Clare was extremely knowledgable, helpful and inspiring. I learnt a great deal and will be recommending the WYPW to friends and family.”
