About the Course

An unlimited access, self directed ONLINE Silk Screen Printing Techniques workshop series!

You can do this at home ! Silk screen printing has the reputation of needing vast amounts of equipment; huge screens, big washout areas, exposure units etc. I take a much more accessible approach: learn my techniques in step by step guides.

This is a technique based workshop, so an ability to draw or design isn’t essential. There are downloadable images to print off and use as visual inspiration – but you can work from your own imagery too.

Session 1 – equipment and setting up a suitable studio space
Session 2 – mixing dyes and printing pastes
Session 3 – printing technique: stencils
Session 4 – printing technique: flour paste
Session 5 – printing technique: mono-printing
Session 6 – printing technique: breakdown
Session 7 – processing your cloth
STOP PRESS!!!
Session 8 – bonus session – DIY exposure unit!!!

You will be sent an email with all the links and passwords you need to access the workshop information. I suggest you start at session 1 and work your way through systematically. You will be able to watch and re-watch the instructional videos as often as you wish.

Interaction with your fellow students via a Facebook group is encouraged and this will be a key point of contact and feedback, here you can share images of your results and get that all important support.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Unlimited access to a a series of videos, PDFs and blogs which will guide you through the silk screen printing process alongside a supportive online classroom [aka Private Facebook group] of amazing 'Print Ambassadors' who, along with me, will help you on your way.

A comparable studio workshop would be between £120 - £180, plus your travel and accommodation costs - learning online represents significant savings and can offer you more time to full absorb the information. If there are any other workshop you would like to see translated in this way, please let me know your thoughts.

What you will need

You'll need a small silk screen and squeegee, some procion dyes and thickener, a few metres of cotton fabric and a small print area. One of the key things is that you DON'T need a light box, exposure unit or extensive washout area - access to an ordinary size sink is fine. If you get in touch I'll send you a link to the a supplies page :-)

I have been inspired by you: your online workshops helped me overcome being locked in my house with depression. In one year I've built a workshop, printed with two old screens and sold my first thousand pounds worth of work.
I can't thank you enough. Everyone who's finding it tough should try your online workshops.
