Event description
Explore various screen printing methods on this one day experimental workshop.

About this Event

Learn to use screen printing in a playful and expressive way using paper stencils and monoprinting methods. The workshop has a strong emphasis on mark-making, colour mixing and print application, allowing you to develop new skills and challenge old ones. Please bring an open mind!

What experience do I need?

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with previous experience. Those with an understanding of screen printing processes will benefit from learning new and experimental techniques.

What will I make?

You will make a series of screen prints on paper using varying techniques. There will be the opportunity to explore the techniques that you enjoy the most.

Who is my tutor?

Sophie Renville is a printmaker and surface pattern designer who joined the workshop in September 2018, supporting students on our printmaking courses as a tutor and a technician. She studied at the University of the Arts London as well as Bradford School of Arts & Media, and runs her own creative practice called Print & Plaster. Sophie primarily works with screen printing processes with an experimental “serendipitous” approach, and is inspired by graphic textures and abstract expressionism.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials and equipment for the course will be provided which will include a range of ink colours and paper to print on. We recommend bringing along a portfolio folder if you have one to carry your prints home. We also sell plastic portfolio folders at the workshop - A3 costs £3 and A2 costs £4 should you wish to purchase one.

Covid Safety

Our workshops and courses look a little bit different as we ensure safe procedures are in place in light of Coronavirus. The changes we have made include;

  • Fewer participants to allow for social distancing
  • Requesting that students attend the workshop with a mask or face covering
  • Hand sanitiser provided on entry
  • Shared aprons will not be provided so please bring your own apron or wear old clothes to the workshop

Full guidance on our Covid-19 policies can be found on our website here.

If I can't attend can I get a refund?

We will refund you if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the first session of the course, after this time no refunds will be issued. Please note Eventbrite’s booking fee is non refundable. By making a booking you are agreeing to our full course terms and conditions which can be found on our website here.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is fully wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and disabled toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one dedicated disabled car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street.

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
