I have recently been conducting Screen-Printing workshops with young people as part of the London Wildlife Trust’s summer program. Using real natural resources such as leaves and flowers as well as drawn and printed material, the children and their parents produced some wonderful and creative images which they printed on to their T-shirts. Feedback for the sessions was extremely encouraging and participants left with enduring and unique works of art on their chests!
If you would like me to come and run a workshop for children, young people or adults, at a venue of your choice, school, youth-club, workplace or party venue, I would be more than happy to discuss options and requirements with you. I have full, current CRB clearance for working with youngsters and a friendly enthusiastic approach. Themes and methods can be tailored to suit the age group/ skill level of those taking part. I will supply all necessary materials/ guidance to produce stunning results, including resource materials, inks, screens and T-shirts. Participants can also bring their own cotton garments for printing to ensure a perfect style/fit.
All inks are safe to handle, eco-friendly and water-based. They are bright and very wash-fast. They produce soft to the feel and enduring prints with very good fine detailing, machine washable and ironable.
I am happy to provide themed workshops eg. Pirates, Nature, Fairies etc, so that the screens, colours and reference material are produced to suit the theme.
I will also be happy to teach full photo-emulsion screen-printing techniques for single and multiple-colour printing techniques using a professional multi-colour press, on a one-to-one or small groups basis at my workshop. Please contact me for details.
