Coming up is a fantastic hands on screen printing workshop – a one day short course presented by Colour Box Studio: more info here. The workshop is run by Colour Box Studio on a regular basis and facilitated by Liz Doust of ambette – this workshop usually sells out so please book in advance.
Here’s feedback from previous screen printers:
• “There is something delightful about getting together with peeps from your neighborhood to create, relax and yarn with. So far I have attended two workshops at Colour Box Studio both by Liz Doust. The first was a Card Making workshop and the second was a Screen Printing day. Liz is relaxed, inclusive and great at explaining things. I am not particularly great at art but I love that the studio is accessible to everyone who is keen to learn!”
• “Really fabulous hands-on workshop, I recommend this to anyone wanting to jump right in without too much time spent on theory. I loved it so much that I want to come to the next one!”
- The facilitator Liz is one crafty girl! When she’s not designing cases for laptops, iPads etc for her label ‘ambette‘, she can usually be found screen-printing, teaching workshops, or studying interior design! Liz has facilitated many workshops with Colour Box Studio including screen printing and paper-cut card workshops.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Come on down and learn to screen print in a day!
Spend the day with Liz, getting your creative groove on – you’ll learn some screen printing basics before designing your own artwork to print, turning your artwork into a stencil and then finally printing your awesome design onto fabric. Don’t worry if you don’t think you have any artistic talent – even super-simple geometric shapes look really effective printed onto fabric. Anyone can do it – you’ll surprise yourself!
Basic fabric is provided, but participants are welcome to bring any other specific fabric they wish to print on, or they can also bring their own blank t-shirt, apron, tea towel etc to print on.
This workshop is lots of fun and you’ll walk away with the skills to start screen printing on your own: more info here.
