Half Day Screen Printing Workshops


Taster session - Exposure screen printing

This is a fantastic session to throw you in to exposure screen printing. You can come along, pick up one of our screens and print away!

This is a great way to get you started and learn the basic principles, in a fun and experimental environment.

This workshop is designed to get you stuck into the process. You will be using Kiwi designs which are already exposed onto a screen. You will be focusing on how to prepare your screen, pull your squeegee, mix colours and how to produce repeats and overlay with different patterns. 


What is Exposure Screen Printing? 
Exposure screen printing is a process that enables you to create a permanent stencil for your screen. Drawings, text, photos, mark making and many more design methods can be fixed into a screen, ready to be printed multiple times onto different surfaces. No need to cut a stencil.



At the end of the workshop you will have produced a small series of swatch screen prints to take home along with a length which can be made into home products.
