Creative Colourful Screen Printing

Tutor- Katie Smith

Saturday 5th October at 10:00am 4:00pm

Join Katie Smith from design studio tablet+HAAR, for a fast-paced workshop learning the colourful and playful process of stencil screen printing. This course offers great scope for experimenting with colour and form to create vibrant designs on both paper and fabric. You will learn how to screen print using simple paper stencils and other materials including pre-cut stencils and found objects. We will cover basic techniques, how to combine form and colour to create simple but effective patterns and designs. You will experiment with different ways of creating pattern and over laying colour to create additional tones in your design. 

The aim is to get you printing as quickly as possible, so that you have plenty of time to experiment and have several swatches/designs to take away with you at the end of the day. The focus will be on creative expression using bold shapes, different techniques and confidence with colour.

Experience level: This one-day course is suitable for beginners and intermediate participants – no drawing skills necessary, just a love of colour and pattern and a willingness to have a go.

All printing equipment screens/inks etc provided. Course fee £60 plus Eventbrite fee. To book a place click here
