I want to get more people excited about screen printing this year. Some of these workshops have been requested by previous customers, some have been popular in the past and others I just thought would be great fun and would attract new people of all ages to screen printing.
I’ll be holding workshops where you’ll learn the basics before putting it into practice with your own designs. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete beginner, it can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.

All workshops run from

Abbeymount Studios,

2 Easter Road,

EH7 5AN.

Prices include materials.

TEXTILE SUMMER SCHOOL 2019 - Monday 29th July - Friday 2nd August - 1pm - 3.30pm daily.
Five days with five textile techniques to explore. Each day you'll be introduced to a new print process which is immediate, fun and experimental. You'll work with paper stencils, photographic screens, transfer and metallic inks, mono print, foiling, layered and blending processes. The workshop is designed for beginners but also perfect for anyone who has a little previous experience of any printmaking techniques. You will produce a whole range of dynamic textile samples which can be made into products, gifts, artwork or kept as part of a techniques portfolio. 
SUNDAY’S ARE FOR SCREEN PRINTING! A whole day in the workshop learning how to print using photographic imagery, paper cut stencils, mixing & blending colour. By exploring these layered and experimental print techniques you'll produce your very own designs. You can work towards producing designs for a light shade, cushion or fine art paper prints with the 3 different days available.
