About the Course
Lara runs a variety of screen printing workshops from her East Sussex studio. Lara's classes are particularly suitable for beginners to give you your first experience of screen printing.
Our fun creative workshops provide a wonderful opportunity to come together and enjoy creating and working with pattern and colour.
During each half day experience everyone will be able to print one item of their choice : A T-Shirt, Tote Bag, Tea Towel or Fabric piece.
You will design your own unique pattern, from which you will create a paper cut stencil and learn to translate your design onto your final fabric product.
The screen printing process is a hands-on craft full of endless possibilities, time for playful experimentation, exciting unpredictable outcomes and the chance to let yourself be creative.
Workshops are limited to a maximum of 6 people, ensuring plenty of personal guidance. Private group workshops are also available – please enquire.
Walk away with a unique and special handmade creation, either for yourself or as a wonderful gift!
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Teaching, all Materials ( including the Tote Bag, Tea Towel, T-shirt or Linen Fabric piece) and refreshments of tea, coffee, and sweet treats.
Lara immediately makes you feel welcome as you arrive, by offering tea and introducing you to the other people in the class. Then Lara tells you about what her work entails and how our morning is planned out. We instantly get down to drawing our designs and cutting them out and sorting our designs ready to print. I had never done screen printing before and I had the most enjoyable morning creating and printing onto a tea towel which I sent to my Step Mum in Canada. I can highly recommend this class and I intend to return.

It was a lovely way to spend the morning and I’m so glad I did it! The tea/coffee and snacks is a nice bonus as well as having an amazing teacher to learn screen printing. It’s a lovely location and great facilities. I highly recommend it, I’d love to do it again :)

What a great introduction to screen printing and one which left me wanting to do more. Lara was a great teacher; inspiring, patient and encouraging. Her studio was the perfect space to experiment while the tea and cakes went down well too.
Thank you for a wonderfully creative morning .

I really liked the workshop experience. I had a couple of ideas of what to print on my t-shirt and with Lara's help I really enjoyed the process and I was very pleased with the result! Definitely recommended.

I bought the workshop for a friend and myself for her birthday and it was such a wonderful present. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. Lara is an excellent teacher, patient, professional and well informed. I have studio envy too as such a wonderful place. I would highly recommend it and hope to be back again soon. Thank you.

I have been to two of Lara’s workshops and enjoyed every minute, could have stayed all day!
Lara is an excellent tutor, I am very much looking forward to attending another course soon. Screen printing is a magical process, the possibilities are endless.
The studio is welcoming, bright and inspirational, a fantastic opportunity to take some timeout, meet like minded people and let your creative side flow. All materials are included, no need to bring anything, but your willingness to learn something new. I have so far created a design for a tote bag and a tea towel.
Thank you Lara.

I had a very nice day at Lara's studio a few week's ago on one of her Screen Printing workshops. I printed a very nice T-Shirt to my own design. It was a fun day and Lara was a lovely teacher. The studio is very well equipped.

The screen printing workshop at Lara's studio was just magnificent! The atmosphere was very calm and pleasant, the pace of work just right. I am not a beginner, but had forgotten this and that, so Lara was very patient and encouraging. I created a couple of prints that I am very proud of and wear with joy.
I loved this experience and won't hesitate to do it again soon! I have already recommended the workshop to all of my friends.

I attended a screen printing workshop in January 2019. There were 4 other people on the workshop. Everyone had a fantastic creative time, and I especially enjoyed designing and making a printed t-shirt for my husband. The teacher Lara was excellent and the studio facilities are very good. It was a unique experience and I will definitely do another one soon.

What a splendid way to spend a Saturday morning! Lara is the perfect tutor - passing on her knowledge and skills to inspire her students, with the bonus that everyone creates their own unique piece of work. The class size is perfect, allowing for individual tuition - yet giving the chance to engage with others keen on creativity. I loved this course - and I'm planning to go again!

This course was an absolute joy. Lara is so calm and engaging. I learnt so much. I loved her studio and it’s in a beautiful spot. Such a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning and to meet new like minded people. I highly recommend this very reasonable and well taught class.
