Learn to screen print in a day!
Taught by Nichola Prested
Transfer your own designs to fabric with the art of screen printing. In this workshop you will learn the basics of screen printing including effective set up, equipment needed to do this at home and the best way to translate your design to stencil. You will learn how to print multiple colours and how to print a repeat pattern.
No creative experience necessary.
Please note: You will be creating stencils in this workshop not emulsion screens. We have a separate workshop for the emulsion method here. We highly recommend taking this stencil workshop first.
