Event description
Learn how to screen print your own design onto t-shirts or tote bags on our one day workshop.

About this Event

The workshop will cover:

  • Coating screens and exposing an image using our UV exposure unit
  • How to prepare and set up for screen printing onto textiles
  • Colour mixing for textiles using pigment and binder
  • How to heat set your inks on cloth so they are washable

You’ll be guided through the process in a step by step way in our friendly studio environment.

What experience do I need?

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those wishing to refresh their previous skills. Those with existing screen printing knowledge can use the workshop to become familiar with our facilities and gain tutor advice and guidance.

What will I make?

You’ll come away with a couple of tote bags or t-shirts printed with your own design.

Who is my tutor?

Kirstie Williams is a founding member of Leeds Print Workshop. She is a practising designer and printmaker creating both textile and paper based work.

She studied MA Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art in 2010 and completed a PGCE teaching qualification at the University of Huddersfield in 2014.

Kirstie previously worked as an Associate Lecturer for Short Courses at Leeds College of Art, primarily teaching in adult education. She is passionate about bringing together a new creative community in Leeds through the running and development of Leeds Print Workshop.

Do I need to bring anything?

Inks and all equipment needed will be provided. We will provide 2 tote bags or t-shirts for printing. You will need to bring some t-shirts or tote bags along with you for further printing. Natural fabrics such as cotton work best as screen printing doesn’t work well on synthetics.

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. 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.
