Our First Screen-Printing Course

We had our first Introduction to Screen Printing Course on Saturday the 25th of February! It went fabulously.

We had a wide range of students for our first class! We had everyone from curious teenagers thinking about their high school art major, aspiring screen printers who are considering printing out of their bedrooms, and businessmen who wanted a wider understanding of the screen printing process. The course began at 10am, and it wrapped up at around 2pm. Everyone took full advantage of the fact that they had the time to ask questions and to pick Mark's brain for information!

The tour of the workshop was guided by Mark but directed by the students themselves; the questions they asked and what they wanted from the workshop let Mark personalise the tour so that everyone's questions were answered.

Only a few small hilarious mistakes happened with the hands on part of the course, with a few lefts and rights getting confused. Angles were erm, angled, and pressures were inconsistent, but everyone gave it a good shot and took home three five colour tea towels that they had very proudly printed themselves.

Our next course is on Saturday 25 March. Make sure you book here soon. We are excited to see you there!!

The course is taught by Mark Cawood and held at Publisher Textiles 1/87 Moore Street, Leichhardt. It includes a hand silk screen printing talk and a studio tour. Click here for more information and to book!
