An Introduction to Screen Printing at épanoui

Thursday 30 May 2019

Time: 7.00pm – 9.30pm at 44 Mill Street, Bedford MK40 3HD

Cost: £55pp

Join Steph from Flat102 on Thursday 30 May and learn how to screen print your own designs onto a tote bag or tea towel.

Perfect for beginners, this workshop at our cosy shop and studio will give you an introduction to screen printing techniques using a paper stencil and will see you leave with your own finished creation.

Steph will teach you how to utilise different paper cutting techniques to produce a stencil of your own design, along with how to prep the screen ready to print your own tote bag or tea towel.

It is helpful to come to the workshop with the design you would like to print or some visuals that inspire you, but don’t worry there will also be some templates available on the day.

All the materials you’ll need, including your choice of either a tote bag or tea towel, will be provided and additional items to print on will be available to purchase on the day. Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own items to print on, light coloured cotton items work the best.

By the end of the workshop, you will have learnt:

1. How to cut a paper stencil

2. How to prep your screen for printing

3. How to apply ink to the screen

4. How to hold the squeegee

5. How to print

6. How to clean your screen!
