Come and join me in the beautiful Shropshire countryside to learn the art of Screen printing.No previous experience is required and more experienced people are of course welcome!
The course will start at 10 am and finish around at 4 pm.Please arrive at 9.45 am to allow yourself time to settle in and have a tea or coffee.
Once everyone arrives we will learn how to chose a design that is suitable for your chosen project. We will then transfer the design onto paper, make and cut out the stencils ready for printing after a short break for tea, coffee and cake which is always very welcome at this point!
We will then learn all about the paints we will be using to print with and others available to you. You will practice screen printing techniques on paper and scrap fabric. Once happy with your efforts we will break for a tasty homemade lunch, cake and a drinks. If the weather is suitable lunch can be eaten outside so you can enjoy the fabulous woodland and countryside that surrounds us here at Highclear.
After lunch we will again have a little more practice on scrape fabric and once happy you will go on to print your design on a tea towel, tote bag and cards which are yours to take home with you.
Course notes and a list of suppliers will be given to you on the day.You are welcome to take them home with you for future reference.
I look forwards to spending the day with you and introducing you to the wonderful world of screen printing.
