Screen-printing Fabrics Live Tuition Course (5 weeks) FRIDAY MORNINGS - Kit Included

Screen printing is an exciting technique which offers a huge variety of creative possibilities. Take a drawing, illustration or photograph and print your image onto a variety of fabrics.


In this course you will learn how to create imagery or edit photographs to make them suitable for screen printing. The images will be transferred onto a screen using a light-sensitive emulsion, following which you can print your imagery onto a range of surfaces.
