About the Course
Release your inner creative on our Introduction to screen-printing experience run by Edinburgh artists Jodie Powell and Brodie Sim.
On the Introduction to screen-printing experience you will begin by learning how to design and cut your own stencil. Then you will mix your chosen paint colours ready for screen-printing by hand onto high quality paper, and onto fabric products. You will take home a framed print of your original design, plus a printed tote bag and tea towel featuring your design.
For those who would like to develop their screen-printing skills, we also offer half-day bespoke screen-printing workshops.
Refreshment breaks - featuring locally sourced products - are an important part of The Arienas Collective experience. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby who we love to support. You will start the day with a welcome coffee served with a selection of pastries, and our buffet-style lunch platters feature a range of cheeses, meats and fish plus fresh fruit. Our breaks allow time to socialise, make new friends, and chat to the artists.
Our artists will support you throughout the day offering one-to-one guidance and tips on design, as well as encouraging collaboration through sharing of ideas within the group. They will do their best to answer any questions you may have.
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited so our artists can offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided, as are all the materials you will need. Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor open plan reception room and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please let us know of any skin or food allergies when booking.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
The price for the day includes all materials, coffee, tea, lunch and of course you get to take the products your have created home to enjoy and inspire you, or to give to family and friends as unique gifts.
I had never tried anything like this before but was amazed by what I achieved. The atmosphere was very relaxed and there was a lovely introduction to the course, which boosted everyone's confidence. Although what we produced was all our own work, there was plenty instruction and help throughout, and I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to try something new and a little different.
