I am delighted to be inviting you both into my printmaking studio at my four-storey townhouse in central Brighton, to reveal the process behind the 'screens', and share it's magic with you.
In our immersive workshop, we will be uncovering the ancient art of silk screen printing on paper. With over 100 inspirational stencils and a rainbow of inks to choose from, you will be encouraged to listen to your own inner creative voice to design your final screen prints.
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.
Not only will you be going home with your new prints 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.
And as a bonus, I’ll be giving you one of my screen printing 'zines' (which is a mini-magazine!) which outlines the whole process so you can go on to start your own screen printing adventure from home.
When The Workshop Will Take Place
You decide! I have reserved Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays up to and including the 11th December for my Home Studio Workshops. If you can't make any of these dates, please get in touch on 01273 387393. I am flexible and subject to availability happy to accommodate you in any way I can.
Where You'll Be
I'll be welcoming you into my home where you'll be learning your new skills in my fully kitted out, light and airy, Printmaking Studio.
We're located in central Brighton just East of the North Laines area in a beautiful residential spot called Hanover.
Thinking of walking? A lot of Hanover is situated across a rolling hill (otherwise known as Muesli Mountain!) so we are surrounded by some of the steepest in Brighton. Don't say I didn't warn you!
Please Note: There are lots of stairs in my house! And you will need to use them to access the studio & facilities. Please get in touch prior to booking if you have any concerns. I am sorry to say, there is no wheelchair access (...but, I can come to you! Learn more).
Who Can Attend?
My workshops are designed to demystify screenprinting and make it accessible to all. This workshop is suitable for ages 14+ and all levels so requires no previous skill.
Only two guests can attend this workshop, not only because I am adhering to social distancing rules, but also so you have my undivided attention! It also allows for plenty of room for each of you to use the equipment.
More than two of you? I can bring the studio to you! Explore my Bespoke Experiences here.
