introduction to silk screen printing - one-day workshop
friday 18th OR friday 25th august 2017
nucleus creative riverside hub, chatham
price £45 (includes lunch and refreshments)
A one-day workshop introducing you to the art of silk screen printing. You will learn different printing techniques to produce one-off and repeat prints and take those skills away with you to carry on printing at home.
You will begin the morning session learning about the basic principles of screen printing by experimenting with paper cut stencils which produce bold and effective prints. Then in the afternoon you will move onto setting up a screen using a blocking fluid that produces a more detailed print that can be reproduced multiple times.
Suitable for beginners or as a refresher course.
Materials, equipment and a light lunch are supplied. You will have 1m of fabric plus a canvas tote bag to print onto.
There are 2 workshops to choose from or book onto both days for £85 where you will go on to combine both techniques and create a final piece. Click here for more details about the course.
