About this Event

2 DAY COURSE

THURSDAY 6th & FRIDAY 7th FEBRUARY

10:30am - 4:00pm

This two day course will teach you the fundamentals of screen printing onto paper, introduce you to the equipment and develop your confidence as an independent screen printer. You will learn how to register and layer your designs, and print with multiple colours. By the end of the course, you will be able to use various stencil making techniques and understand their effects. You will gain an understanding of the photo stencil emulsion technique and will learn how to coat and expose screens. Your tutor will also introduce you to relevant contextual artists and screen printing terminology.

What experience do I need?

No previous experience is necessary. The course is for beginners or anyone looking to refresh their skills. Those with previous experience may use the course to develop their skills and become familiar with the facilities at our workshop.

What will l make?

You will produce a series of handmade screen prints A3 size in one or two colours of your own design. There is the option to create graphic or fine art prints as well as greetings cards.

Who is my tutor?

Mary Gibbons is a screen printer who studied at ArtEZ Academy of Arts in the Netherlands and later worked in London as a Graphic Designer. She currently works as a print technician at Leeds Arts University supporting students in Further and Higher Education. She is inspired by nature, mark making, pattern and texture.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials including inks and cartridge paper will be provided. The workshop also sells a range of printmaking papers if you would like to try something different. Prices range from £1 to £2.20 per sheet. You are advised to bring a portfolio folder along if you have one so you can carry your prints home - these are available to buy at the workshop.

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

We will issue a refund if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after which 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 but, due to the nature of the building, Leeds Print Workshop is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step up into the building and four steps down to the toilets, and no accessible toilet facilities. Should you have any questions, or wish to discuss accessibility before booking, please don't hesitate to email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org

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