SCREEN PRINT - SYDNEY

LOCATION: The School

TIME: 10am to 4pm

Come and explore screen printing and experiment with colour combinations to take home your very own print. You won't believe how addictive and fun this is. No experience necessary and all materials supplied. It’s something you will truly enjoy and expertly guided by Joanna Fowles who teaches textiles at UTS as well as other highly impressive creative pursuits like her L.O.T.S label.

Everyone will have 4 pieces of A3 heavy paper (minimum 300gsm) and end with a finished print. As it is a non exposed screen stencil workshop if anyone wants more complicated stencil we suggest they come to the class with one pre cut. Eckersleys sell good quality stencil paper with a vinyl feel so it will last a number of prints. Otherwise newsprint will suffice but this will only last a couple of prints. 

INCLUDED: 4 pieces of A3 paper (min 300gsm) with tea towels, napkins and calico bags available to buy on the day and a light lunch.
