Description

This is a relaxed, friendly, supportive, experimental and fun experience where you will learn a new (or revive a previous) skill and take home something you feel proud enough to frame! You will have the opportunity to create your own, individual, silkscreen printed artwork. As well as being part of a group you will also receive lots of one to one tuition to help you achieve the best outcome.

Group size: 2 – 4 people. You can book as a group or as an individual.

The day:
• Start 09.45 for 10.00am start

We will get straight into experimenting with some simple silkscreen techniques and paper stencils to get used to handling the materials and equipment. Then you will be ready to prepare your own images to print onto either paper or fabric (or both!). Please bring your own imagery if you have something specific in mind or you can select from a range of starting points which will be available. You will have an opportunity to prepare and experiment with a range of techniques and layering processes, all of which you can carry on with at home with the minimum of equipment.

I had the best day with Judith learning about screenprinting. It is a skill I've always wanted to learn and the day was fun and very creative. We were very experimental and i was encouraged to try different things and print onto different mediums.
I recommend this course to anyone who wants to try something new or even home in on your skills and learn more about the craft. Judith is really knowledgable and will definitely inspire you to get creative.

Screen printing was a totally new experience for me but Judith was very good at explaining everything and was very patient and helpful. I came away with some artwork that I am very pleased with. Her house and garden are an ideal place to do it. I had a very enjoyable and relaxing day. Lovely thing to do with a friend.

We spent a lovely day learning about screenprinting and messing around with inks and prints. Judith was knowledgeable, helpful, patient and had lots of ideas to help us make something we were each pleased with. The whole day was a treat!

Amazing day thanks to Judith. Learnt new techniques and had a really fun day.

Response from print paper stitch experiences:

Thank you Beverley, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and your prints were beautiful. I can't wait to see how you use the silkscreen techniques in your textile pieces.
Very best wishes, Judith

I loved this course and learnt so much that I would like to go back in about a year! I feel sufficiently confident to screen print at home on my own and the many hints and tips were so useful. A big thank you to Judith for such a wonderful day (loved her home made cake). I am more than happy to recommend this course to everyone.

Response from print paper stitch experiences:

Many thanks Rowan, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and I loved your beetle prints!
Best wishes, Judith

My daughter and I spent a lovely day with Judith on her screen printing course. I had done some screen printing many years ago and I very much enjoyed trying it again. Judith paced the day well, introducing us to various techniques and offering help and advice when needed. As there were only three students we all felt we had had a very worthwhile experience. Judith inspired us with examples of her beautiful work and I came away wanting to do more at home. Lovely coffee and cake as well! Thanks, Judith!

Response from print paper stitch experiences:

Hi Sarah, thank you very much for your review. It was a great pleasure to have you and Anna here for the day, and I hope you get chance to continue to turn your beautiful illustrations into prints.

With very best wishes
Judith

What could be better than spending a day learning how to screen print in the beautiful surroundings of Judith’s home and garden? There were 3 of us - an ideal size - and we got started straight away with trying out various techniques. Judith encouraged everyone to jump straight in and mix colours, try different backgrounds and experiment with different ways of cutting stencils and silhouettes, showing us lots of inspiring work of her own and from past students. After lunch in the lovely garden we began layering up techniques to create a small print run of a piece of art we could be proud of. Trial and error was absolutely encouraged and we all came away with lovely things. I’d absolutely recommend this as a really great way to spend a creative day.

Response from print paper stitch experiences:

Hi Anna, thank you very much for your review. It was such a pleasure to have you and your mum here for the day.
I am very excited to see your future prints!
With best wishes

I have never tried screen printing before and found this course ideal. It was lead in a welcoming, encouraging and patient way. It was great fun too and with such a small group, was relaxing and rewarding. I printed on both paper and fabric and was so inspired to see work that had been created by previous classes and by Judith too. Would really recommend 😀

I highly recommend Judith's screen printing course. We learnt how to print onto paper and fabric, tried several different techniques and finally produced a piece of artwork to take home.
The class is small so you can have plenty of one-on-one time and Judith is very patient answering endless questions and explaining options for how you might want to do your masterpiece.
This was an excellent and fun day.

This was my first try at screen printing and it did not disappoint. We gained an appreciation of the technical skill required for particular results but were still able to produce pieces that we were proud of and could use to create further prints. Judith's studio is an inspiration, full of light, and to spend the day with fellow printers in such a creative space was a treat in itself. Many thanks, Judith, for an enjoyable day.
