Explore your creativity in a relaxed and enjoyable workshop with Rachel at Danywern. The studio is nestled on a hillside near Crickhowell, surrounded by nature with views over the black mountains. A perfect location to block the world out for a while!
In this workshop you will be taught screen printing. You will be guided through the whole process beginning with a short demonstration, and will have instruction on the use of tools, how to get the best out of your designs and print your final pieces.
You can choose from a variety of items to print, a boxed set of cards, a lovely silk scarf, a bag or a cushion cover among others! You will learn the technique in a relaxed atmosphere and leave with a beautiful hand printed item that you will be proud of.
Suited to both total beginners or the more experienced.
*** Due to recent events, the workshops will be limited in numbers for the time being, to individuals or couples. The studio is in a detached building and all equipment will be sterilised before the workshop, masks will be worn and distancing measures will be taken, so you feel safe while you work.

I absolutely loved my course with Rachel! The day started with Rachel showing me the silk screen stencil process and in no time at all it was my turn to have a go! She really encouraged me to be adventurous with my ideas and we had such fun choosing the image and colour to create a range of fabric prints and a lovely cushion cover. I was completly blown away by what we managed to acheive by the end of the day and I have had so many wonderful compliments on the cushion cover we printed that I cannot wait to create something else. Rachel is a fabulous teacher and a very lovely lady - I totally recommend her courses and will definitely be back in the future to try my hand at something else.
Response from Rachel Cadman Craft Courses:Thank you Jayne, that brought a tear to my eye! It was so lovely to meet you and I am not in the least bit surprised that you've had so many compliments, it is beautiful! Hope to see you soon xxx
This course was brilliant fun, and I was delighted with my finished set of cards. Rachel made everything very easy and shared her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm with us. All the equipment you need is provided and the setting is in such a beautiful location, it really was a treat to go there. I will definitely be back for another course!
The course was excellent, and it was so good to try a new skill. Rachel is such a patient teacher, and explained the whole procedure so well. The environment is so beautiful at the workshop, so peaceful and lovely. Rachel made the day fun and relaxing, and I enjoyed spending time with the others on the course. I hope to attend many more courses with Rachel in the future. Thank you so much for the great experience.
Response from Rachel Cadman Craft Courses:Thank you Jo, I hope you come again soon! xxx
We had such a wonderful day. Its in a beauiful area and was so relaxing. Rachel is a very patient, kind teacher. I felt that I'd really learned something. As a disabled student, things can be more difficult, but not here. Every effort was made to enure I was happy & comfortable. I would definitly recommend this course. I'm hoping to come back soon to take the other courses that Rachel is teaching.
Response from Rachel Cadman Craft Courses:It was lovely to meet you and hope you come again. You cards were lovely! R
