Introduction to Screen Printing on Textiles

Kate Strachan
£70 / £40*

An action packed introduction to textile printing! This day will cover the simple but very effective printing technique of using paper stencils and silk screens. It will lead you through making your own designs to print onto tote bags, t-shirts or tea towels. We will take inspiration for designs from simple but beautiful everyday domestic objects, the natural forms of flora and fauna or your own ideas. A selection of objects will be provided for inspiration, but feel free to bring your own items/images or sketches as a starting point. You will be led through design ideas into preparing stencils for printing.

Suitable for all levels, including beginners.
