Introduction to Screen Printing

Term 1 Screen Printing Basics for Beginners

A short introductory course of 6 sessions, weekly on Thursday evenings will introduce you to the process of screen printing using hand cut stencils.

Screenprinting is a great way to apply images T-shirts, paper for fine art prints, fabric for making cushion covers or bags, flat pack boxes, calico bags, greetings cards… the options are endless! With minimal equipment you can print at home on your kitchen table once you know what to do.

You will work on easy projects to help build your confidence, before progressing on to print on items such as a T-shirt or bag.
