1 day textile silk screen printing introduction



Workshop Description

This one-day workshop is designed to take you through the whole process of  silk screen printing on to fabric.

You will experiment with hand drawn images and cut paper collage to create artwork to print onto fabric in two colours.

You will be taught to prepare, coat, expose and wash out your silk screen. You’ll also learn how to mix inks to print on to cotton or linen fabric.

Workshop dates are arranged at your convenience and are taught on a one to one basis so you’ll get sole use of the studio and bespoke tuition throughout the day.

By the end of the day you will go away with a piece of printed textile and have learnt the skills to prepare your silk screens and print on to fabric independently.

Workshop level

The course is designed for complete beginners or those wishing to refresh their skills.
