Student Work - Screen Print Summer School

Cottenham Summer School - Spectacular Screen Printing. Why has it taken me so long to post this wonderful work by students on the course? 

Everyone makes SO much work during the week that any pictures I put up can never capture the sheer exuberance of printed fabric that's produced.

As always, what I love about teaching screen printing is that each person in the class brings their own personality to their prints. Some people like to do multi- layer, multi-colour prints, some like to be graphic, some textural.  Whatever style people work in it's always  done with a spirit of exploration and discovery.

It's quite difficult to get onto this course but I am teaching two Saturday day schools (not linked) before deep winter.  One is at Cottenham Village College on Saturday 14 October '17 (see post below) and the other at Impington Village College on 25 November '17.

Screen Print Studio

There are still places left on Screen Print Studio at Cottenham Village College on Saturday 14 Oct 17, from 10 am to 4.00pm -  a lovely long day for getting immersed in a print project.  Cost is £35 / £26

This is an informal class for Adults.  There will be an introductory, hands on demo for beginners who will be taught about equipment, materials and basic techniques for screen printing. All techniques shown are ones that can be achieved at home on the kitchen table.

Anyone who has done screen printing with me before can skip this bit and work on their own projects.

A4 screens and printing inks are provided for use in the class (small materials fee) and you bring your own fabric to print on. It could be patches of cotton if you are a quilter, or textile artist; you can also print short lengths of fabric for sewing up into clothing / tablecloths etc;  or if you don't sew, bring light coloured T-shirts, shopping bags, pillow slips etc.  The college will give you a materials sheet which will explain exactly what to look  for in the fabrics you choose.

 Screen printing is magical and fast - come along with a pile of plain fabric and leave with a great pile of colourful prints.
