5 WEEK EVENING COURSE

THURSDAYS 26th SEPTEMBER - 24th OCTOBER 2019

6:30pm - 9:00pm

Learn to use screen printing in a playful and expressive way using stencils, screen exposures and monoprinting methods. This course will encourage creativity and using the screen printing technique. You will learn new processes, opening you to new outcomes and methods within screen printing. The course 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 course 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 Minal runs her own creative practice called Print & Plaster. She has been working with us as a tutor & technician over the last year supporting students on our printmaking courses. Sophie primarily works with screen printing processes in an experimental way and is inspired by textures, abstract shapes and surface patterns.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials are provided such as inks and cartridge paper to print on. The workshop also sells a range of different papers should you wish to try something different. Prices range from £1 to £2.20 per sheet. The course covers the cost of a screen exposure for up to an A3 size image. If you are particularly prolific when producing artwork there is the opportunity to purchase more screen exposures from the workshop. The cost of an A3 size screen coating is £2.50. If you don't have a portfolio folder to take your prints home these can be purchased from just £2.50.

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

We will refund you in full if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. 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.
