2 DAY COURSE

WEDNESDAY 29th & THURSDAY 30th MAY

11:00am - 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?

Joanna Wilkinson is a practising printmaker, illustrator and bookbinder. She uses printing, collage, analogue/slow photography and sometimes even old style colouring techniques like felt tips in her work! Joanna is currently studying for a MA Creative Practice at Leeds Arts University and is also a Co-operative Member of Leeds Print Workshop. She has been working with us over the last year as a technician to support our members and courses in screen printing, along with various other printmaking techniques. She has experience in teaching a wide variety of different groups of people including children and adults.

Do I need to bring anything?

You may like to bring a notebook to take notes. Basic materials including inks and cartridge paper will be provided. The workshop also sell a range of printmaking papers if you would like to try something different. Prices range from £1 to £2.20 per sheet. The workshop also sells plastic portfolio folders to take your work away with you 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 first session of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. Once booked, you cannot transfer to another course.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings or adverse weather conditions). 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.
