Have you always wanted to make your own prints but didn't know where to start?
We have a range of full day courses designed for complete beginners and those wanting a refresher.
You can create a set of paper prints ready to frame, or learn how to produce a repeat print onto fabric by using the traditional technique of cut stencils. Or even taking your repeat fabric design and making it into a lampshade. If drawing is something you love, why not transform a black and white drawing into a screen print through our exposure screen printing workshop.

I had such a wonderful time learning how to screen print at Kiwi. It's a lovely bright and colourful studio with very friendly and attentive teachers and technicians. Having not been a very confident drawer I was happy to learn that this wasn't a necessary skill and screen printing can be very versatile to all skill levels, I had such a great time and would recommend to anyone looking for something different to do when in Cornwall.
Absolutely loved it!
