School Workshops

Kiwi offers creative and professional screenprinting workshops for schools and young people, enabling them to design and print their very own unique t-shirt, bag or poster based on a given topic. 

Pupils are given lots of hands-on practise, exploring and using the professional tools, materials and equipment required for sc
reenprinting, and developing the versatile skills and and applications used in the design industry.

We deliver workshops to accommodate everyone's learning needs, helping to raise self-confidence, improve team work and inspire each pupil to achieve and learn something new.

Kiwi can travel to any venue with all materials or, if preferred, groups of 10 can come to visit us and enjoy a screenprint workshop in our bespoke print studio.
