On this full-day screen printing workshop with Edinburgh-based artist and printer Lou Davis, you will learn how to create a repeat pattern suitable for printing onto fabric.
You'll spend the morning creating patterns and learning how to make them seamlessly repeat across your fabric.
Then we’ll take your best pattern and create screen prints using the photo emulsion method. You’ll learn to coat, expose, print and clean silk screens, and then print them onto cotton creating repeating patterns.
You wiil print your final design onto a cushion cover, apron or tea towel ready to take home.
Our artist will support you throughout the workshop offering one-to-one guidance and tips on design, as well as encouraging collaboration through sharing of ideas within the group. She will do her 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.
