Screen Printing on paper – One day workshop.
Saturday 21st June – 11am til 4pm. The workshop costs £80 per person and you need to book and pay in full before the 14th June to be sure of your place. Your tutor will be Lynne Blackburn.
This workshop is designed for beginners to provide an introduction to screen printing using the drawing fluid technique.
You will draw your image directly onto a silk screen using drawing fluid. You will learn how to mix the ink to the correct consistency; practice registering the paper and then print a small edition of your 2 colour design to take home. By the end of the day you will have the knowledge to be able to print simple designs yourself at home and you will be ready to attend one of our intermediate screen printing classes.
All our classes are kept to very small numbers – a maximum of 4 people – so you will get plenty of personal attention. You will be supplied with all materials that you need – just bring a packed lunch and your ideas !
For this workshop we will be using only ‘safe’ acrylic inks and materials but you need to be aware that Hippo Screenprinters is a working print studio where some solvent based inks are used so, unfortunately, our classes are not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to solvent fumes.
Bookings are closed for this event.
