This taster workshop is a fantastic opportunity to experiment with print making using silk screens and stencils.
Workshop run by tutor Nicole Line, the participants will be guided through each stage of the process with a series of demonstrations and wide range of samples to take ideas from. There will be several activities throughout the morning workshop to encourage confidence using the materials and objects. Inspiration will be taken from your own projects or mainly focusing on abstract shape to get you started, images provided by Nicole.
These workshops are a chance to gain an experience and try something new, and all work created can go towards personal projects, or to just have a go! Printers are also encouraged to take a look at home for anything you could up-cycle and transform through print. Please bring up to 2 items to print onto.
Have a go at making your own stencils at home so that you can spend more time printing. We recommend you use thin acetate sheets to make the stencils, keep it simple and keep it A3 size and under. Avoid making stencils from thin paper. Beginner printers are welcome and for those who are curious about textiles processes and mark making.
A4 size materials will be provided for you to sample onto. Please bring along your own final pieces to transform.
To make your prints machine washable, iron your items for 3 – 5 minutes, gentle wash.
We have free parking available at the studio's. Please make sure you collect a visitors parking permit at reception and put "Nicole Line Workshops, 07590376528" and place on your dashboard.
