Felting & Textiles

DIY Screen Printing - Two Colour

An introduction and exploration of home print making. Most people are under the illusion that screen printing requires specialist equipment, and spending a lot of time and money to get good results. However, this not the case. This course can give you the confidence and skills to do your own simple print making projects at home. You will also be shown how to make two colour prints.

The session will be split into three parts: building the screen, making a stencil for printing, followed by printing with the newly built equipment.
