An introduction to screen printing
Join Steph from Flat102 on Thursday 28th February and learn how to screen print onto a tote bag or tea towel using a paper stencil.
This workshop is ideal for beginners who are interested in learning the basics of screen printing.
The class will cover how to screen print using paper stencils. Steph will teach you how to utilise different paper cutting techniques to produce a stencil of your own design, along with how to prep the screen ready to print your own tote bag or tea towel.
It is helpful to come to the workshop with the design you would like to print or some visuals that inspire you, but don’t worry there will also be some templates available on the day.
All the materials you’ll need, including your choice of either a tote bag or tea towel, will be provided and additional items to print on will be available to purchase on the day. Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own items to print on, light coloured cotton items work the best.
By the end of the workshop, you will have learnt:
1. How to cut a paper stencil
2. How to prep your screen for printing
3. How to apply ink to the screen
4. How to hold the squeegee
5. How to print

You will get to go home with your very own creation of tote bag or a tea towel!
