About the course The Three Week Course will take participants through the process of screen printing using photostencils. Artwork can be in the form of drawings or photos. You will need to email artwork in advance, or bring with you to the first session. Advice on suitable art work will be given on booking. Week 1 Traditional printing with paper stencils. Plan photo stencil. Week 2 Prepare artwork in 2 or 3 colours and transfer onto the screen. Week 3 Screenprint using photo stencils. You will learn how to: coat the screen with the liquid stencil; producing artwork for transfer onto the screen; transfer artwork onto the screen using the exposure and washout units; Correct mixing of ink and medium, instruction into building the image through layers within the screen print process. At the end of the three weeks you will have produced several prints, including traditional stencils and a finished print from your own artwork using at least two two or three colours. You may have a group of identical prints, or you might have a several prints that are all a little bit different. This will depend on your approach - whether you are more interested in learning the techniques that will allow you to produce editions of prints, or whether you are more interested in experimenting, and playing around with the medium. Either approach is good.

I discovered screenprinting in 1990 while at college, and was instantly hooked on it; the crisp edges and pools of saturated colour, and l liked its versatility - you can work small or very large, be spontaneous or meticulous as you like, and it is just as easy to print on a tee shirt or a piece of plywood as a piece of paper. In 2002 l moved to Bristol to study a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education. I divide my time between making prints, drawings and paintings, teaching, and illustration.
