The perfect introduction to fabric screen printing, our beginner workshop is ideal for anyone interested in learning the complete screen printing process or simply looking to print some tea towels or cushion covers with their own design for a special occasion. The sessions will run from 10am – 4:30pm with a 30 min break for lunch, a great opportunity to sample one of the many food kiosks located on levels 5 and 6 of the building. The day will be split as follows:
After a short intro into the history and process you’ll guided through the digital artworking process, if you prefer working by hand we’ll have a variety of drawing materials available for you to draw out your design from scratch. Once these are completed everyone will have a chance to coat their own screen.
After lunch you’ll expose your design onto the screen. While they’re drying we’ll cover ink mixing and the process of setting up the fabric tables ready for printing. When the screens are dry everyone will have a go at printing their fabric. Each person will walk away with 1metres of fabric printed with their own 1 or 2 colour design.
