Event description

Description

In this busy one day workshop at Slamseys, you will learn the techniques of stencil screen printing; working with both positive and negative stencils. We begin with looking at screen printing repeat designs using smaller screens, with the opportunity to use our thermofax screens, and move onto larger-scale bold designs with our bigger screens. During the workshop you will learn about setting up a studio space, have the chance to explore different inks and print surfaces and practice registering a two colour design. By the end of the workshop you will have the skills and knowledge to get set up and continue printing at home.

You will leave with … 5 quality prints on paper and experimental prints of your unique designs and the skills to continue printmaking in the future.

Who is this workshop for? Beginners with no experience in printmaking and those with a little printmaking experience who would like to refresh their knowledge. There will be a demonstration of each new technique before we start. Once you have completed this course, you may be interested in Returner Screen Printing Open Access.

Materials and equipment: All printmaking tools, equipment and materials will be provided. Please bring along your sketchbook or any special reference material, as it helps if you have some design ideas in mind to work from. For inspiration, have a look at our printmaking boards on Pinterest.

Important details: Group size is limited to 6 people to give you plenty of space to work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout the course. The workshop will begin at 09:30 so please arrive five minutes beforehand for a cup of tea or coffee. The workshop will finish between 15:00 and 15:30, depending on the complexity of your design and the speed at which you work. Teas and coffees are provided throughout the day, but please bring along a packed lunch (the nearest supermarket is a five-minute drive away).
