Textile Screen Printing
Spend an immersive weekend learning textile screen printing in our fully equipped workshop and take home samples, t-shirts, and bags printed with your own designs! This fun, hands-on course will cover the whole textile screen printing process – from preparing images for print and exposing them onto screens using the photo-emulsion process, to printing and fixing your designs using water-based, washable inks. You can choose to print repeat images onto lengths of fabric to take away with you to make a bespoke textile item, or to print your design onto t-shirts and tote bags.
This course is suitable for beginners and well as those looking to learn a new printmaking technique or wanting a process refresher.
Karen Stansfield is a printmaker/maker who previously worked in television, theatre and the fashion industry. She now works from her studio exploring different printing mediums and exhibits locally.
Plain calico fabric, 2 plain white t-shirts and 2 calico tote bags are included in the course cost, and extra are available to purchase on the day in a range of men’s and women’s sizes. All basic materials such as inks, paper, tools and equipment are included. Other materials and printmaking papers will be available to buy during the course if you would like to try something a bit different, or take some materials home to try out.
After attending this course you will be well equipped to join our workshop as a member and continue to use our facilities to make and develop your own work. The sooner the better, as the longer you leave it the more you are likely to forget! If you sign up for membership within one month of attending the course you will receive a £5 discount!
