What We'll Do
There's just something really amazing about screen printing, and I am delighted to be inviting you Starling Studio in Preston Park Brighton, to reveal the process behind the 'screens'.
In our immersive workshop, we will be uncovering the ancient art of silk screen printing on paper and textiles. To kick things off, you will be encouraged to listen to your own inner creative voice to design your final prints sparked by over 100 inspirational stencils and a rainbow of inks to choose from.
I will then guide you step by step from sketchbook to squeegee throughout the whole process to realise your designs. You will be taken on a journey to discover the methods I use in my own practice, the equipment and materials involved, the process and finally the results - your very own hand created screen prints on paper and a choice of textiles.
Not only will you be going away with your new printed wares to decorate your home or give away as gifts to loved ones, but you’ll be leaving with the knowledge of this wonderful printmaking technique and the tools to enable a lifetime of home-made screen printing.
BONUS! I’ll be giving you one of my screen printing 'zines' (a mini-magazine!) which outlines the whole process so you can go on to start your own screen printing adventure from home.
Over one hundred stencil designs to choose from; a solo printing bed inc. hinge clamps, A4 aluminium screen; squeegee; A4 stencil paper; A4 'good paper'; Craft knife & cutting mat; a rainbow of inks, masking tape, spray glue; stationery; the Brighton Print Club screenprinting Zine; & lots, lots more!
What Do I Need To Bring?
