Event description

Description

Learn the basics of screen printing on this greeting card printing workshop.
You will use a combination of hand cut paper stencils and pre prepared imagery on screens to develop a selection of your own unique greeting cards. You will be guided through the screen printing process in a supportive but informal workshop environment.

What experience do I need?

No previous experience is necessary. The course is ideal for beginners or anyone looking to refresh their skills.

What will I make?

You will produce a series of unique hand printed cards to take home.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials and equipment will be provided; this will include cards and envelopes, a range of ink colours, cutting knives and mats, screens and squeegees.
Feel free to bring along images, books or printouts to use as inspiration if you have an idea in mind.

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.
