About the Course

This is an introduction to the basics of screen printing on fabric using hand cut stencils, producing printed small to medium sized textile artworks using 1-3 base colours and the colour mixes achievable through over-printing techniques.

The course is led by experienced teacher and designer maker Liz Ryan and takes place in various locations - just contact us for further information. Our objectives are to demystify the screen printing process, providing the participant with a thorough understanding of the principles and techniques of screen printing on fabric and enough knowledge and confidence to continue to develop their skills independently.

Each participant will design and cut stencils to produce a final print or prints that can stand as an artwork in itself or, at a later date, be incorporated into a wide variety of handmade craft projects, such as cushion covers, bags, garments etc. This makes screen printing a valuable skill for any designer maker who deals with textiles, surface pattern etc., and an exciting and immediate skill for those new to printmaking.

The course is suitable for the more experienced craftsperson / maker /artist wanting to learn a new skill or for the absolute beginner.

Please get in touch for details and bookings. Please note that the price for one person attending the workshop is £99 or for two or more people attending the same day £75 each. Please enquire for dates as courses are available frequently on Monday's, Friday's & Saturday's.

Want to review this course?

Liz Ryan was a great teacher and the course was fab. Liz supported us via email in designing an image suitable for the screen printing process before we arrived. When we arrived in the inspirational space full of colour and ideas, she gave lots of support throughout the process; along with tips and suggestions for further experimenting.
I have since bought my own screen printing kit to try some more at home. Thanks Liz! Lovely lunch too!

I really loved this screen printing course. I am creative but had never tried screen printing and Liz made it easy to learn. She guides you through the whole process with loads of patience! She is really warm and friendly and makes you feel relaxed from start to finish. There seems to be nothing that Liz doesn’t know about printing and I came away with prints that I was super pleased with. I couldn’t recommend this course more highly it suits complete beginners or the more experienced creatives. I am going to book another one later in the year so I can do more prints, screen printing is pretty addictive!

I would thoroughly recommend this course. Having never tried screen printing before the day with Liz was a wonderful introduction. She was a lovely host and really looked after us, provided a delicious lunch and most importantly making sure we left with prints we love. I would go again in an instant.

This course is very informative, fun and great value for money! I booked this course having never screen printed before and have come away from it inspired to get my own screen printing tools to carry on experimenting at home. Liz goes above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of the course with lots of one on one guidance and advice. I would highly recommend to anyone.
