WORKSHOPS 2019

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 my workshops run from Out of the Blue - Abbeymount Studios, 2 Easter Road, EH7 5AN.
