LEARN THE ART OF SCREEN PRINTING WITH JOANNA SLOAN
Drawing on inspiration from the the Old Rectory garden Joanna will teach you how to create a one colour screen-print using the paper cut-out method.
Participants will learn the principals of screen printing through demonstration and a hands-on experience of pulling their own designed print. Don't worry if you get 'designers block' there are plenty of template prints in the studio that you can use!
Your designed print can be onto a set of 4 cotton napkins, 2 cotton tea-towels or a square panel of linen, suitable to make your own cushion with, or to use as a piece of art. All of the inks that you use will be water based and all fabric is 100% cotton or linen. Participants will take home the skills to continue printing at their own kitchen table.
Your workshops will include all materials and light refreshments. The studio is set in the court yard of the Old Rectory. I would be delighted if you also enjoyed my garden whilst you're on the workshop.
Under current Covid-19 distancing recommendations we will be inside working at a 2 metre distance from each other with the doors open.
The studio is a large high-ceilinged space with plenty of natural air ventilation. Maximum number of students will be 4 on any given course to cater for social distancing. Currently masks must be worn indoors.
