Join Sarah for this intimate two-part workshop and unlock the secrets of printmaking while creating your very own masterpieces. Throughout the workshop, you'll work with ink, paper, and fabric, learning about various machines and tools to bring your visions to life.
On your first evening, you'll dive into the intricate process of screen printing. Together, you'll prepare the screen, a critical step that involves coating it with photosensitive emulsion, exposing it to create a stencil, and then carefully washing out that stencil to perfection. You'll also delve into the world of open screen printing and paper stencils.
As you explore the workshop, you'll have the chance to examine an array of binders, pigments, and special effects such as foil and flock, adding an exciting dimension to your printing repertoire.
Building on your newfound knowledge, in your second session you'll master the art of colour alignment, a crucial technique in printmaking that ensures precision in your creations.
With Sarahs guidance you'll venture into the realm of offset printing, pushing the boundaries of your printmaking skills. Screen masking, another exciting facet of printmaking, will be explored, allowing you to add depth and complexity to your designs.
This is your opportunity to experiment and create using the techniques you've learned over the two evenings. Let your creativity flow as you produce unique and captivating prints.
Note: This workshop runs over 2 evenings on consecutive weeks. Whichever evening you book will be your first, and the second will be on the same evening the following week.
