Screen printing Workshop

Class description

This fun & friendly workshop will guide you through the steps to produce a handmade paper stencil screen print.

Perfect for people who have little or no previous screen printing experience because you will be guided from start to finish.

It’s a hands on and super fun class, be prepared to get messy - wearing old clothes is a good idea!

Each participant will leave with 3 prints on high quality printmaking paper (just like them there professionals use!) Keep one for yourself and give the others as gifts … if you can bear to part with them!
