Event description
Explore screen printing onto textiles using natural forms and textures.

About this event

Join Print Designer Ellie Way for a day exploring screen printing onto cloth using nature as inspiration.

Using a variety of leaves, flowers and foliage you will create a small selection of coloured print designs. You'll learn how to expose imagery on to screens with photo-emulsion and will explore textile inks and printing methods.

You'll come away from the workshop with a basic understanding of textile screen printing processes and some pieces of printed cloth which can be used for sewing projects or framed as artwork or wall hangings.

Who is the workshop for?

This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or those who wish to refresh their previous skills. Those with an understanding of the process can use the day to develop their skills and gain some new inspiration.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials needed for the day will be provided. This will include a range of colours of textile inks, a selection of foliage and some textile pieces to print onto. We recommend bringing some additional pieces of cotton cloth to print onto.

Working Safely

We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to come and join in without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants to allow plenty of room for social distancing.

In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering.

We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the ‘new normal’.

If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing info@the-arthouse.org.uk.

Course Booking Terms and Conditions

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite's booking fee is non-refundable.

We can offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend due to Covid-19.

In the event that The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
