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!

The day: • Start 09.45 for 10.00am start • 13.00 Lunch • 16.00 Finish We will get straight into experimenting with some simple silkscreen techniques and paper stencils to get used to handling the materials and equipment.

Maker


I aim to provide relaxed, friendly and fun workshops combining my experience from fashion/textiles printing and many years teaching GCSE and A level students in their Fine Art and Textile studies. It's all about exploring possibilities with colour, shape, layers, pattern and textures - which I love to do within my own work, creating a range of prints and collages on paper, fabric and cards.
